Note: I re-watched the Halloween dance scene a while back, and was inspired to write. This was the result.

I

I am stumbling, running blind
Terrified, out of my mind
Chased by them who haunt my dreams
Followed by their taunts and screams
This is where the end begins:
Where I'm running faster; straining
Looking back I see their grins
My heart sinks as they are gaining
My fear is immense
As I reach the fence

II

Climb! Escape! They pull me down
So close, but still so far
I'm turned around; a glare, a frown
I doubt they want to spar
(Had I known, incidentally
I would have acted differently)

III
Flee! Break loose and get away!
A few steps 'til my end
A kick, then pain – I bend
I angered them, so I must pay
I'm shaking; can't hear what they say
I know what they intend –
A punch – it hurts! – I almost fall
I don't have time to damn them all
When one of their kicks greet me
The ground comes up to meet me

IV

For a moment – darkness, bliss
Could it be they're done?
Then I'm pulled up with a hiss
Know I cannot run
More kicks, more pain, the only sound:
Their jeers as I am spun around
I gasp, cannot draw breath
And fall, expecting death

V

I've barely touched the floor
when I'm pulled to my feet
I can't take anymore
Head hanging in defeat
Vaguely hearing a discussion
God, I must have a concussion
This is their repercussion?
I know that I am beat

VI

I am limp in someone's hold
Aching; barely conscious; cold
Then I hear the roar
Pulse is racing uncontrolled
Knowing what's in store
I cannot fight back
Knowing that the end is near
When he does attack
His cry of rage is all I hear

VII

Then suddenly, I'm spun around
Everything is blurry
A second later, on the ground
I guess I should worry
Something's changing in the air
Saving me, I am aware
Why or how I do not care
I wish that he would hurry

VIII

All is still, and time has passed
I dare to close my eyes at last
