I looked up, shaky,

your eyes ask,



I turn around and run,

because no one ever asks me,

wants me,

to stay

My heart beats for the first time,

wild, excited thump

t h u m p i n g,

It ripped my chest open,

out of breath, bleeding

I run faster, farther,

far far away

because I knew one day you’d ask me to leave

    you can't worry about how it will end if you won't let it begin?
