Treasure Island

C.C.T.A


I see me, slumped over in a shower
Head pressed against the wall
Steam stripped stripes streak down my back
Leaving a zebra of red on my skin
I stand silently weeping to myself, wanting so much to move, but not to move
Wanting to run, run away from everything
Run into her arms so I can cry helplessly
Run into the arms of one who cares enough to help but not too much to cause it
I want to run until I'm gone, gone from all of everything
Everything except for you
I want to run,
Run,
Run,
Run,
I want to cry.

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
