Run, Run So Quietly.

Run, Run So Quietly.

A Poem by SilentScreaming

Run, run so quietly

Try not to hit the ground

For if their hands can grasp you You surely will fall down.

 

Your heart, it races Your feet, they pound Your hands, so scraped, they hit the ground

 

You try, so hard, to not give up

You know, with terror, what is searching for your soul

What can take you, leave you as nothing but a black hole

 

Run, run so quietly

Try not to hit the ground

For if their hands can grasp you You surely will fall down

 

Your eyes squeeze shut, your lips they tremble

You've seen the face, you know what it resembles

This is no film, no goulish horror book

You can't just cover your eyes, refuse to look

 

This horror, the hissing, it is all real The terror, the pain is all that you feel

Push yourself up, keep your feet moving, squeeze your lips shut

Keep your eyes open, prepare to be cut

 

Run, run so quietly

Try not to hit the ground

For if their hands can grasp you You surely will fall down

 

The hisses begin to surround you, the scratches pierce your skin

They draw blood with envy, poking at you like a pin

The pain, it numbs your mind

The fog, it makes you blind

 

Until your feet will not take anymore

Your body, so numb, drops to the floor

Their claws, they pierce your fragile skin

Your soul is covered with virmin sin

You lay their, as the winter snow begins to fall

The creatures, now satisfied, they begin to crawl

Your soul, now contaminated, falls before your eyes

Your spirit, now damned apon slowly rots and dies

 

Run, run so quietly Try not to hit the ground

For if their hands can grasp you

You surely will fall down.

I like this poem. Nothing better then mystery and fear in a poetry or story. I like the pace and the repetition of words. Making the poem stronger and gave the poem purpose. Thank you for the poem. Great story and movement in your words.

When I get a read request I look for something that screams to me - that I can relate to and I relate to almost every bit of this. The feelings that are in this piece you can feel. I feel such sadness. It tells me about the fights I struggle with everyday and the creatures are really just the people in this world that aggravate us and tell us that we aren't good enough or don't meet their criteria. Sometimes, our emotional scars can be visible on the outside for all to see through being afraid and no matter how much we try to conceal our hurts and fears they are exposed. I'm not sure if that is what you were going for, but that is what I got out of it when I related to it. Very good.
