Undecided Escape

Trees, trees, trees
Branches, sticks, leaves
Whipping, gashing, slashing at my arms
I can’t get away no matter how fast I run

Tripping, falling, crawling on the floor
Ragged cuts, tattered clothes, jagged breathing as I start to slow
My eyes are heavy, my vision blurred
Distant images start to stir

He’s right behind me, he’s catching up
I have to keep moving, but my legs have had enough
Getting dizzy, about to pass out, a distant figure starts to stand out
A distant scream, a whispered plea, I can’t believe it came from me

Pulse is racing, a feeling of hands, a gentle hush as I’m helped to stand
It’s him, he’s caught me, please strength don’t leave me yet
Let me be anything but his sullied pet
I have to leave, I have to get away, I fall to my knees and let my head sway

Stopping, he stares at me and gives a mirrored laugh
Then he reaches for me as I start to move back
I’m to slow, he’s to fast, I can’t get away, he’s taking me back
I can’t let this happen, I must react

Head’s too fuzzy, I’m getting too weak
I’m stumbling over my own feet
One chance, a pull, a twist, a pop and a moan
I’m not the one with a broken bone

I’m still running, he’s still coming
My strength’s about to give out
Dead end, cliffs end, water and rocks below
Tell me, if you had a choice which way would you go?
