They Might Catch You (poem)

Run or they might catch you

Run or face some mischief once begun

Run and shut that timeless door behind you

Run and live the fate which you have won


Cowering behind curtain drawn window

Towering over each silenced regret

Scouring journals of nothing

Showering in meaningless answers


Hide or they might find you

Hide or face a person brushed aside

Hide and pull your covers around you

Hide and toss your mirrors far outside


Cuddle in dark corner which time aged

Muddle in the minutes cast away

Huddle in this person which you made

Fuddle in formless fake reasons


Run or they will catch you

Hide or you’ll be caught up in their tide

Run and still they dauntlessly pursue you

Hide and still your dreams find ways inside
