"Run!" Screams the lights inside me
Swarming my jumbling mind
They startle me form slumber.
"Hide!" screaming I jump outside
I race down barefooted.
Confused I run swiftly.
"Scream!" I shake my head no,
I will not give in to my madness.
I want it to go away!
"Bleed!" Finally, I listen.
Sadly, Ironically, I listen and
I run and scream and hide and bleed.
I have done what they said before…
why should I not listen now?
