Completely intertwined

wrapped up

strangling on a vine

Time was running out

she couldn’t breathe

and yet she fumbled

tried to break free

the danger was near

and time was never on her side

She could hear the voice

that broke through the icy darkness

“Don’t give up now, you’re so close.”

Sweat running and muscles aching

she couldn’t stop and couldn’t quit

The faster she went and the farther she ran

she heard them nearing

“we’ve nearly caught her”

“just a few moments more”

“it will be too easy”

these new voices louder and deafening

she listened for the one

the one her heart beat for

her own voice cried out

“how much more?!”

and silence reigned for a moment

not even a breath

no drumming heartbeat

her vision narrowed

and she focused with all her might

but the one was silent

and as the tear slipped down her cheek

she was captured

sick with defeat

breathing in deeply she fought for control

but the anger built up

a raging inferno that blazed through her skin

but the demons who held her were immune

for they were her kin

The voice of the one whispered through her mind

“rest well, for tomorrow we begin again.”

She squirmed and she wriggled

until with sheer determination she was free

and with her soul going up in flames she yelled

“fuck this and fuck you and fuck them!!!  I’m done with this game.

There’s no way to win!!!”

And as the demon brothers scrambled to reach her

she spread her dark wings and ascended above them

going higher and higher til she reached the sun

and dove straight through to the heart

and hid until she could see the moon

she waited there for lifetimes and eons, and never once

in her refuge, her haven did she dare leave

to hear the voices that called her

and the one she would follow blindly

even to her own torture, a willing slave.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
