Fighting Blind

By: Leah Payne

I scream
But no one hears.
The danger
Looming, perpetual nears...
The footsteps echo
In my ears
Danger leers.
A dark silhouette
And merciless eyes
The fear in my stomach
Starts to rise.
And what happens next?
I’ll tell you no lies--
He takes a step closer
And out my fist flies.
Thrashing and crashing
Tangled and twined
Fighting blind...
