You’re trapped in your nightmare

You escape.

You get away.

You run to the keyboard,

pouring out your fear

your exhaustion

your ecstasy.


“The walls are closing in.”

You typed and typed

until the page turns

until you hit RETURN.


The walls aren’t closing in.

At full speed,

it was you

heading for them,

running and running.
