i like to run.
from people,
from problems,
from myself.

correction: i do not enjoy running.
it has become an involuntary action,
a horrible habit;
an easy escape.

running is easy.

when people start to care,
it is easiest for me to run.
rather than sticking around
and risking getting hurt.

when something gets difficult,
when i come across a problem,
it is easier for me to run.
rather than sticking around
and trying to work it out.

when my mind destroys itself,
when my thoughts go in circles that get tangled into a knot
more complex than the cord of my headphones,
it is easy for me to run.
to escape to my room
with a book and a song.
it is easy for me to run.
to fall asleep in the middle of the day
not to wake up until late at night.
it is easy for me to run.
to make myself numb
to any feeling.

the easy way out,
is not so easy in the end.

because i end up with
no friends
and a headache.
i end up
lying awake at 4 am
wishing for happily ever after.
i end up
not being able to control
the numbness;
the emptiness that i used to inflict on myself
becomes permanent.

she calls him her savior
because she has never seen
his flaws and insecurities.

she claims that he saved her
but she’ll never know,
that he’s just like the other boys,
another breaker of hearts.

she has put him high
up on a pedestal
where nothing can touch him,
where he is perfect,
in every sense of the word.

but if she knew him
she would see
that he isn’t perfect (much like you and me).
she would see that he is
just like every other boy,
and she would curse him
just like she has every other boy.

but she doesn’t know him and so
she only sees his caring smile and perfect eyes.
she only knows the witty tweets and relateable lyrics that have become the anthem of her life.
she only hears his silk voice and his melodic laugh.
she only knows a composed boy who gets up on stage every night to sing to thousands of screaming girls.

she doesn’t see his ex-girlfriend,
who he is writing all those songs about, going through hell.
she doesn’t hear him shouting at his little brother, or throwing things after he’s been in a fight with him mom.
she’s never seen his temper, the way his fists clench or the flash in his eyes.
she doesn’t ever hear the profanities that fall out of his mouth when he reads all the hate against him online.
she doesn’t see him picking at his face in the mirror, wishing for clearer skin.
she doesn’t know he squeezes into his jeans, because his manager has been hinting that the other stars are quite thinner than him.

she doesn’t see
him lying on the floor of his room
just as alone as she is,
holding on for dear life
just a tight as she is.
