Tail and Find

In Personal, Poetry, Writing on November 12, 2012 at 9:34 pm

This might be my least favorite writing I’ve come across so far, but I figure if I’m going to give out the decent for others to read, I might as well give out the less fortunate, too.

I can’t get rid of her.
Is she holding me back?
Am I dragging her along?
I run but she tails me.
I hide, but she can always find.
Minutes or hours, there always comes a time when I turn and she is there.
I would react to losing her for good.
Cry and grab a needle?
Try to get a kiss?
Maybe question my reality.
Maybe forget she was ever there.
Maybe just flip a little switch and create her all over again.
I imagine I might miss her,
This dark and sneaky copycat.
But she always tails and finds and she is always mine.

Now tell me, please – how obvious is it as to what this poem is about?  I feel like this is one of those writings that has no interpretation…
