The Hunted

"Thump, Thump" the sound of running,
As I duck behind a door.

I can hear my heart a-pumping,
"Boom, Boom" against the floor.

I lie down on the ground,
And listen to it beat.
"Boom, Boom" I hear it pumping,
And I hear the sound of feet.

"Pat, Pat" the distant sound
of footsteps away downstairs.
"Thump, Thump" they get much louder,
And its more than I can bear.

"Pat-Pat" they go away now,
My fear is now drawn taught.
If they come right back now,
I will be surely caught.

I hear my breath quite loudly,
"Whoosh-Whoosh-Whoosh" it goes.
How long will it last now?
No one really knows.

This poem was written in 1996 by Nate Boshears, age 13.

Also, a touch of ylang ylang essential oil provides balancing, calming, and anxiety-soothing elements. Added vitamin E helps to restore skin health.
