i am
so good
at
running

&getting better
at letting go

abandonment
weighs
more
than i’d admit

and shapes me
more
than i would like

it can’t be good
to always
have the urge
to run

to continue
being transient
finding comfort
in anonymity

i imagine
this urge roots itself
in insecurity

fear
of being left
leaves you
running

starting
with smallness
helplessness
youth

surrounded by reminders
you are
replaceable

’cause don’t you know
in america
everything
is replaceable

from teeth

to cars

emotions

to people

don’t worry
because there is
always
something better
just around the corner

but yes
i am just
so good
at running

i can be gone
before you even know me
even though
i am an open book

and i
still find comfort
in this
fucked game
i’m playing alone
along
with the rest of the world
