When John Ran Away

Do you remember that night I ran away?

You watched me argue in my Sunday best.

The parental guidance had reached it’s limit.

I couldn’t handle the ill support anymore.

I’m tired of failing, I said.

Anger resonated from Father.

I don’t know what to do, I said.

Resonating silence.

I’m done with this life, I whispered.

My body was gifted energy.

I ran.

A place of magic welcomed me at night.

The dark unknown was pleasant until my mind took charge.

Demons screamed and I was lost; till morning.

And that was the moment I changed.
