Distant Voices Closer Footsteps

At first…

They sound distant

The voices

From a distance

You feel safe

Then…

They sound closer

The voices

My heart beats faster, faster, faster

Closer!

The voices become

Until I can hear their footsteps too

Run!

But I can’t

Closer still

Pound pound pound goes my heart

Panic

The footsteps are nearly here

Move!

I need to run

But I cannot.

My feet are stuck –

Frozen.

They are coming!

Jolt.

Awake

Bewilderment –

Relief.
