Poem // Piece by Piece

Written February 5, 2013

@2013 Melissa McLaughlin

Heart beating pounding racing
Ready to jump out of my chest
Run Run away
far fast flee flee
faster
faster
get away.
Escape from those that wouldn’t know
wouldn’t ask
wouldn’t follow
follow me
Please
hand outreached
lift me up
carry me away
carry me home or anywhere really
to safety
to help.
But here I sit
I haven’t moved
or made a sound
and no one knows
no one asks
no one helps.
I stay silent
sitting
listening
watching
dying

piece by little piece.
