    Your abrupt departure from the present
    predicament only proves how truly chlldish the level you live on is.
    But I understand.
    Since your brain's mental capacity has no room to consume maturity,
    you remain limited to lil' gurl levels.
    I understand that your answer to attempting a sensible discussion is to
    react unreasonably cause you'd rather run
    from it than run among it.
    But how far can you run when you've discovered that you're running from yourself and no matter how fast or far,
    You look up and there you are.
    No matter how fast your car,
    You slow down and there you are.
    It's bizarre how you can never see me for who I am completely.
    It deeply saddens me to see you surface your out of the closet logic in which you deposit objects of unknown origin.
    It saddens me to know that somewhere out there is you.
    And somewhere further out there is the self-pity you seek.
    when you realize that running is just a race for a brief escape...
    run faster.
    Try to outrun the screams of the screaming demons guarding your tortured soul.
    And when you realize that the unbearable screeches are fueled by your speed...
    run harder.
    And when you realize that the harder you run,
    the closer you come to the mirror in the distance...
    run.
    And when you reach that mirror and look in it,
    you'll see me.
    And when you do...
    keep running.
