You run even if no one’s chasing after you

You cry and try to scream for help

To whom? From whom?

Nothing comes out, not even the slightest sound

You hide, at a dark corner

Fall to the ground, gathering — hugging your knees together in fear

You sob, loud sobs

Desperately wanting to bury your face in someone’s chest

Feel the safety in that person’s comforting embrace.
