Symptomatic

I was fine.

I was fine and then

I heard an unfamiliar noise and

I couldn’t tell where it was coming from, and

the first thought that came to mind was

How did he find me here?

Twenty-three steps between me and

safety.

I was fine and then

I wasn’t and

I was scared of you all over again.

Oh, how I wish you’d just leave me alone.
