I ran like the wind

Adrenaline was coursing through me

From a panic which had gripped my heart

I kept looking over my shoulder

The white of my eyes large and frightened

My legs pumping like pistons in the dark

An echo of voices floted around me 

Taunting my imagination with their words

But I couldn't clearly hear what they said

I ran and ran but was going nowhere

There was no wind or sense of motion

It only deeped and enhanced my dread

I strained and strained my eyes

But there was no sense of direction

In the darkness of my flight

A whirlwind of emotions poured over me

At one point I screamed out loud

And at another, I cried

And I ran

I poured out everything

My fear had me in its grip

I knew I couldn't let it catch me

So I continued to run...

Until I tripped

A new panic wrenched my heart

The feeling of falling continued

I waited and waited to hit the ground

My arms reached out before me

But realized now that I was flying

And I could hear the voices differently

The din of noise was altered slighly

I could feel my fear subside

Their taunts were not what I perceived

The jabs at my flaws and failures

The laughter and murky words

I thought were pointing out my mistakes

Were on a different level

Everything before which had given me fear

Poured through another gate

And I awoke...
