The Running Pencil

I can feel the moisture progressing on the top of my forehead
Little light creases start to form here on my chin 
I'm looking at you and I can see that you are lovely
Beyond your red rose colored eraser, and your tented yellow streaks
Lies a handsome texture of a newly grown tree wrapped around carved graphite
Your incandescent sensation is intense
My grey eyes are no match to the glow that flows off your wonderful carving 
You are so beautiful I can't even imagine how I could write with you
Behind all that beauty I can see that you are terrified 
Terrified that I might abandon you, after your jagged edges fall to the floor
Your point will be no more 
Possibly terrified I would use you to you were numb
I can't imagine how I could do this to you 
But it needs to be done
This is your destiny 
This is your end 
I must write with you 
As I gaze at you slowly, with suspicion out of my grey colored pupil 
I see no reaction, no movement, no emotion
Do you even care?
But then I hear you scream
Let me go 
Oh' please 
Oh' please just let me dream
You try to wiggle from my grip 
But I just tighten up
My hands are trembling
You're incredibly to strong
My hands set free 
You hop towards the door, but I run faster
Closing in on you more and more
You look back just to take a glimpse of this nightmare
Now looking forward, you are getting closer to the door
Gotcha I yelled
Please you begin to plead
But I won't let you go, no not anymore
You were close to your escape, but this isn't your fate
