Hello?  Are you there?  Anyone? Hello? Hello?

Please somebody! Anybody! Help me! Help!

I am trapped

Unable to breathe

I am in the dark

All alone

Help please!

I am sinking

Sinking in sand

Help! Please!


Grab my hand!

Pull me out

I need help

I can’t do

It by myself

Please! Anyone?

Save me, I beg

A vile


Put me in here

I can’t see

I am in fear

Please! Help!

My tears stream

I am broken

Utterly alone

Can’t you hear my scream?


No human contact

Losing my mind

Help! Please

I need mankind

Locked away

In this damp place

A kind of hell

Perhaps another world

I can’t tell

I am begging

Hear my plea!

Please come

Please rescue me

Oh God! NO!

He’s coming back

I can’t get away


He’s going to attack

He lashes with his tongue

His hands!

His hands are on me!

Oh God! NO!

Pain, agony

Take him away!

Please rip him apart!

Destroy him

He’s killing me

Slowly, I’ll depart

I begin to pray

Praying for peace

Please pray for me

I bow my head

Pray for my relief

Deliver me from this evil

Please hear my call

Banish him from my heart

On my knees I fall

Praying for peace

My soul drifts away

I feel it leave

My body is limp

Below me, I can see

Floating above

Slowly I go

Leaving a shell

Going away

Leaving this hell

Finding a peace

A safe place

Something inside me

Drifting away

My mind hides me

Beginning to rest

Falling asleep

Wonderful feeling

Drifting away

No longer reeling

Saying goodbye

I’ll see you later

Going away

In another time

Another place

No more crime

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.

    I love the scheme setup you have for this poem, the short sentences really capture the feelings of dread, panic, and sinking. Great poem!
