I run from things not out of fear, but out of compassion for the pursuer! I know the ecstasy of the chase. There is desire, longing, passion, and life within the chase. A purpose. A need. An emptiness that burns with the expansive cold of the void. And then the elevated sense of self-worth after the catch. The longer the hunt the more intense the pleasure. The chase offers the hidden element of life that would otherwise perish with the lack of want. I feel I should allow others to enjoy it as much as I.
