I fell, over the cliff in this love affair I held on to the ties that bind grasping for leverage in this vertical incline while watching the frayed rope that entwined my heart to his unravel one thread at a time ~
The smell of urine and dirt assaulted my nose, as I ran through the dark, cluttered hallway. My hands still cuffed behind my back made it difficult to support my balance. While I heard his heavy footfalls echoing in pursuit and rats scurried silently before me. Although I stumbled against graffiti walls, I didn't stop.
But I questioned, as I followed the small stampede, were they leading me to my escape or were they in cahoots with my captor? Yet I had no choice but to pursue, as if I could hear the pied piper's song.
