running running

I run
I run from others
From this situation
But mostly I run from myself

From the clamor in my restless head
I run from emotions
From feeling, from ‘what if?’
I run from my mental state

Leaving my body numb
My brain buzzing
Leaving judgment and torment
Leaving nasty looks and solid lies

More than blocking out
More than pushing away
More than saving until later
Not running because I’m scared
Running because I’m done with it
I run from myself
I run
