Run Faster

 

My feet pound the earth

Heart in my throat

Thump

Thump

Thump

They beat in time

My footsteps and heartbeat

Running faster

Running harder

Running 

away

from

myself.

Away from my fears.

I glance behind

My fears follow

Red eyes

Fangs and claws

Bloody horrors.

I turn around and

I

Run 

Faster.
