Blind

A Poem by Charley

A poem about... the unknown

"

Blind 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Metallic floor 
 
Eyes flutter 
 
Shoot open 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Nothing. 
 
Pitch black 
 
Losing balance- 
 
Sit down 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Nothing. 
 
Lean back-
 
No wall! 
 
Thud. 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Nothing. 
 
Eyes don't see 
 
Panic! 
 
Nothing. 
 
Crawl, crawl 
 
Look for a wall 
 
Nothing. 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Keep crawling 
 
Ages, eons 
 
Nothing. 
 
No wall 
 
Rest 
 
Nothing. 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Don't give up! 
 
Curl up 
 
Tight 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Cry 
 
No one there 
 
Nothing. 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Keep going- 
 
Crawling 
 
Slow. 
 
Nothing. 
 
Stop, 
 
Listen 
 
Nothing. 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Thud! 
 
Creak... 
 
Something! 
 
Door opens 
 
In the dark 
 
Somewhere... 
 
Distant... 
 
Something! 
 
Stand up 
 
Wait 
 
Nothing. 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Still 
 
Listen 
 
Faint pounding 
 
Feet? 
 
Paws? 
 
Something! 
 
Howls 
 
Paws. 
 
Angry yowls 
 
Something! 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Run! 
 
Feet pounding 
 
Heart racing 
 
Scared 
 
Something! 
 
Mindless running 
 
Yowls closer 
 
Run! 
 
Escape 
 
No escape. 
 
Something! 
 
Keep running 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Suddenly- 
 
Nothing! 
 
Trip- 
 
Fall! 
 
Cold, dark 
 
Alone again 
 
Yowls continue, 
 
Running stops 
 
Falling 
 
Down 
 
Screams 
 
Escape 
 
My lips 
 
Fall. 
 
Snatched up 
 
By rushing 
 
Wind 
 
Dark, cold 
 
Nothing 
 
Falling. 
 
Dark, cool 
 
Falling. 
 
Light, warm 
 
Nothing. 
 
Bright, hot! 
 
Blind

About
I love writing stories. I often have ideas, but they don't all get onto paper. Most of my stories remain unfinished, but I'm hoping to change that. *update* November 2015 I wrote a whole novel.. more..
