Hostage

by Jenni Marie   Feb 1, 2007


Darkness overcomes me
I've been given such a fright
I feel so helpless
Can't see the light.

I don't know where to turn
Just haven't got a clue
Someone help me please
Just tell me what to do!

I take a look around
The sky is shades of gray
My heart is pumping fast
As I fall down and pray.

I'm kneeling by a river
Water cascading free
The moon hangs low
Why'd this happen to me?

My whole body is shaking
My breaths are coming in short gasps
My vision is slowly dimming
Death is approaching fast.

Tears escape my eyes
Hiccups escape my throat
Everything seems distorted
I think I'm about to choke.

As I glance down at my shivering body
I notice my clothes are ripped and torn
There are bloodstains everywhere
Clothes fairly new now look old and worn.

My mind flashes back to that terrible night
When I was dragged away screaming from what I knew
How the h e l l could you do this to me?
I've been told so many lies I don't even know what's true.

I remember your cold hand over my mouth
The cruel antagonizing words in my ear
The tightness of the rope around my wrists
I thought I was going to die I was so overcome with fear.

You proceeded to send a ransom
Not caring about the pain that you did cause
Did you just randomly decide on me
Did you never stop to think or pause?

Now the police are on their way
And you have left me here and fled
Not a single soul knows where I am
In a few hours I think I will be dead.

Your cowardice and greed have cost my life
And I admit I can't help but cry
Because even though I've done nothing to you
You have just left me here to die.
