by Amanda Blanchard
(North Carolina)

the noise grows louder and more aggressive -
it frightens me to the core !

the pounding and pounding
the creature is ready to gobble me up
until there's nothing left but the shrill memory
of my affrighted shadow -

why me ?

what have I done to attract this thing,
to make it crave my very essence ?

please make it stop !
please ... PLEASE

ever louder the bangs ring through me,
they rattle my brain,
they tear at my heart,
they rip my flesh !

how can I survive this ?
I am gone ...
