The Long Road Back

The long road back
He took me for a ride one day
To get away from home
What started out as having
Fun, left me all alone
I wondered why a right turn,
Turned into a left
Where are we going, I
Suddenly ask myself?
Snow fell on the ground, and
Ice hung from the tree
There was a painful look in
His eyes, as they
 Suddenly focus on me.
In the middle of nowhere
Forest and the weeds
I knew from the start
A tangled web was weaved
Forced out of the car
For no reason at all
Crying, begging, as the
Grass broke my fall
Lying on the ground, cold
And scared to death
Terror took my voice as
I tried to call for help
He left me in a place I
Never had to be
All this time I thought
The man loved me
The long road back turned
Day into night
I couldn’t find my way out
So I gave up on life
I fell to the ground covered
With ice and snow
Why he left me here I
Really fail to know
I remember closing my eyes
And hearing strange sounds
Shadows of fear covered
Me as I laid there
On the ground
When I open my eyes
I were lying in bed
Frozen from my waist down
With a cut on my head
Hunters found me there
That night in the nick of time
My boyfriend got arrested
For this indecent crime
It’s a long road back
To finding my life
But I will always remember
What I went through that

    Thanks Catie, I made it through, but before I did I went through some terrifying thing.
