Treasure Island

C.R. Ebowski

(Living in my reality / Dying in the world)

Running Away


all that can be heard
is the pitter-patter of my feet
as I run away

sprinting

I had friends that tried to help
offering me everything
under the smothered sun
but still I ran

nothing feels better
than running

drowning in pity
swallowing magic pills
handfuls of stupidity
forever

always

running from me

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
