You Can'T Run Away - Poem by Carrie Everett

You can't run away
To move could be to die
Looking into those carzed eyes
With hunger shinging in them
Like the reflection on a lake
You try to duck from the swings he makes
It hurts like heck
But you can't run away
You don't wasnt to stay
The ropes hurt your arms and legs
Because you are tied to the bed
And you get slapped and neat
Your body starts to look like mince meat
You say stop
He gets madder
You cry
He hits harder
You be still, letting your mind fill with dense fog
While he acts like a rabid dog
When you finally get away
You want him to pay
But the cops say 'nay'
Then you go back home
To be alone

    Carrie, not an easy subject matter to write about, but one faced by thousands of young girls. Throughout the poem, and particulary in the line regarding the cops, you've captured how hopeless the situation can be... Good write!
