Trying to stay still and silent

Overwhelmed with fear

Shivering in the frigid air

Will he find me here?


Waiting for darkness to close in

Run throughout the night

Strong enough to keep on running

Too weak for a fight


Terrified as he pursues me

Tracks me through the snow

What did I do to deserve this?

You don’t want to know!
