I run here and there

away from these walls

they keep squeezing me in

they keep choking me out

they keep chasing me

to my dark fears

to my loneliness

I rush down the stairs

falling on my way

I stumble down

on the street

amongst the crowd

I feel still afraid

I feel still afraid

I cant raise my eyes

to look for a face familiar

Could you just find me somehow

and embrace me

take me away from

my pain

I think I understand where this is coming from through our conversations. I like how you reflect the isolation and the fear - this escape mode of falling down the stairs and onto the sidewalk. It's an image of panic.
It's all going to get better...

Thank you Meg :-)
I think I was overassuming things. I was able to sleep!
