No Turning Back

I close my eyes 
And I can see the golden eye looking at me.  I think to myself 
“Why me.” 
Then I stop, 
Because I remember that it can read my thoughts.  
The golden eye 
Is like a lace wing with yellow eyes 
That can see everywhere.  
It is the all knowing eye.  
I try to run 
Because I know it needs me for something,
Even though I don’t know what, 
It can’t be good.  
It never is.  
I start running faster,
But there’s no escaping.  
The golden eye will just get inside my head.  
I can hear it 
Whispering something 
In an ancient language.  It starts getting louder and louder 
Until 
I am on my knees screaming.  
Then it’s silent, 
I’m silent.  
I get up 
And start walking, 
But it’s not me walking, 
The golden eye is pulling me back.  
I try to fight it 
But it’s too strong. 
There is no turning back now.  
It’s over!

    You have the power to reach into the far recesses of you mind look what Goliath did with one single sling shot, brave girl to write and tell of it, have a blessed day xxx
