Running for life

Step after step I drag myself through the rain

Blind to all around me , my  mind closed to the pangs of pain.

Fear, hatred and panic screaming in my head, loathing causing in my veins.

Step after  blooded step , fast as I can and yet it is coming still gaining.

I stumble and fall , legs and arms graze I crawl no point in complaining.

Hot breath on my neck I shudder in fear I smell his rank sweat as he draws near

I feel his claws scrape at my flesh, I loose a scream of primal fear.

Ripping at my dress and  hair I run for my life, to look over my shoulder I don’t dare.

No choices left to me, naught I can do . I stand and face the beast  for death I prepare.

Eyes red as the devil pure evil it seems it closes on me the worst of all my bad dreams.

Caught in his clutches, mercy is not on the cards, so  I beg for divine intervention

Praying  hard, His nostrils are flaring he’s baring his fangs letting me live is not his intention.

Finally all I can do is fall on my knees and pray , why must this horror be my last of days.

Suddenly after a thunderous noise a white flash as lightening  carved him in half God be Praised.

Broken and bleeding I lay in the mud,my life slipping out of me no fight left no more……..

    I love this piece — pure emotion. I felt every move throughout; I almost feel out of breath (a good thing here!). 😀

        I do not expect you to do anything…most of the people now have too many….it is just a way of saying hello….

        I feel awful but I just cannot keep doing awards, my partner gets annoyed if I am on the laptop too long. So I want to concentrate on writing and talking to people like you!! 😉 xxxx

        Do not feel awful….hardly what I want. I will still give them to you, but as I say, sometimes these are what bring me back to you….and your kind world. So awful is the opposite of what I feel about that.
