Lost - Alone

Darkness is complete. I feel eyes on me.

Not Cold, not warm. Naked? A twig snapped - where?

Who’s There? Silence.

I fear! I love! I cannot lose you.

I heard, something? Acrid taste and smell, wood smoke?

Step, into decaying vegetation.

Another step, oh God, rotting flesh. Small animal?

Kicked something hard. Oh hell, I’m wearing sandals!

Faster sounds from back, no from right.

Panic! Run! Trip! Fall!

Lifted by hair, horrible breath.

Gravel imbedded laughter.

Brightness, my eyes, sour laughs, the light hurts. Am I blind?

Woman’s voice, “Now what do we do with you?”

Why? Who?
