Must be at least a thousand beats per minute now
Thump-thumping pumping radically 
As though it might explode.

Endorphins flying high on the adrenaline 
Reaching out emphatically 
To take the overload.

Elongated light curves out ahead of me 
Bending back so I can see 
Pursuers closing fast.

Reaching out with claws to slash and tear my flesh,
Teeth to gnash and grind my bones 
To powdery repast.

Shifting all my power into overdrive,
Find the means to stay alive,
Keep the bloody beast at bay.

No bold rescuer, no cavalry 
Swooping in as savior. It’s only me 
Desperate to get away.
