run

(away)

By Sara Published 3 months ago 1 min read

i like to

sleep alone

because my demons

do not like strangers

and my pillow

is soaked in blood.

i am nobody’s girl

a child of the wind

the sea and the stars.

no one waits

for me

when i come home

because i never go.

i have always

liked running.

it silences

the madness

in my brain

that says too many things

i do not want to know.

i do not look back

and only chase things

i will never have.

they say

but you don’t have

to

do it

all on your own

but what if

i want to?

    I love it, especially the blood soaked pillow. But I love the picture even more! That's incredible 😁
