Death In The Snow - Poem by mackenzy edmonds

I’ve been running,
Running away.
I’ve been running away from something.
My feet I’m going to collapse in the white blanket of snow
I feel him gaining on me.
My breath I, I can’t seem to catch it
He’s coming; he’s coming for me
Why what did I do
No this can’t be this is all a dream
A horrid, horrid dream
But it’s not
I’m scared, I’m lonely, and I’m hurt,
Will no one help me?
I finally fall on that cold, cold snowy night
I’m cold, no is coming on one cares.
I hear footsteps as my heart skips a beat
I get up and start running again I feel him there he caught me
He holds me I look up and see his handsome face like an angle beautiful black curly locks; handsome eyes like a famous artist drew them,
His knife about ready to plunge it into my heart he stops and I wonder why
He looks at me and asks are you not scared? do you not see me about to hurt you
I say I’m not well I was at first but I noticed something, I noticed no one loves me I die they party no one cares I cry they laugh so just get it over with
He drops the knife
I look at him
He looks at me
I say why do you stop? I have nothing to live for
He says you have beautiful eyes
I look at him confused and say why aren’t you killing me? I have nothing to live for you just don’t understand that tears falling down my face
He says you’re not the only one same as you no one loves me I die they party no one cares I cry they laugh
I smile and say well I care
He says I care about you that’s why I stopped I looked into your beautiful eyes and noticed how much I loved you even though I never met you I felt like I new you forever
He holds me in his arms
Then he walks me home we are madly in love one year later he asks to marry him I smile and say yes two years we are more in love later we are then last year



Three years later

I’ve been running.
Running away
I’ve been running away from something again
My feet I’m going to collapse
I feel him gaining on me.
My breath I, I can’t seem to catch it
He’s coming he’s coming for me
Why what did I do
No this can’t be this is all a dream
A horrid, horrid dream
But it’s not
I’m scared, and I’m hurt,

I finally fall on the ground
I’m cold.
I hear footsteps as my heart skips a beat
I get up and start running again I feel him there he caught me
He holds me I look up and see his ugly face warts and all
His knife plunged into my heart he threw me on the ground I lay there in hope that my love would come so I can say good-bye to him, again I hear more footsteps they’re different footsteps I lay there my heartbeat fading
He’s here my love is here he holds me I tell him I’m cold he tells me that I’m going to survive
He was wrong I whisper good-bye and there in his arms I lay dead, dead to the world his tears fall like rain but I cannot feel them for I am dead, dead to the world
He takes the dagger out my heart and stabs his heart and there we lay together and dead, dead to the world. Now we are going up. Holding hands and going up. Good-bye cruel world. Good-bye
