This is a small part of story that I am working on to be published in my book of 12 stories. 

She resumed in trekking; still searching for a way out
When something caught her eye which appeared to be a route.

Confidence grabbed the reigns in her chest, filling it with air;
Her breathing and her heartbeat tripled for she was almost there.

But as the path ended so did her mirage of nirvana.
It led her to a basin filled with red-bellied piranha, 

Caiman alligators, and electric eels
 Imagination was the one in her head turning the wheels

Sending pulses down her spine which reeked of fear
Forcing confidence to be evicted through each crying tear.

But her cries for help could not be heard
For the jungle’s trees kidnapped every word

The sun squinted his eyes through the trees in the west
“A bridge!” she gasped. She began to feel blessed

Sarah had to move quick; a race against the clock.
Night plus blood equals animals on the stalk 

Please rate =))

    Oops sorry - that stired it up a bit, I quite agree you have the correct word, I was meerly observing that in some places the natural pronunciation of route doesn't rhyme with 'out' it rhymes with 'boot'. As mentioned before I enjoyed reading this poem - lots of potential - ttfn :)

    Thank you for your compliments! It means so much=0) As for "route and out" concerns....Honestly I was always taught that the word was like a heteronym...a word that is spelled the same, but two different pronunciations OR two different meanings like......Bass fish/Bass drums...or Polish worker/Polish the floor..hmmmm...but I could be wrong and if so my editor will make me change it...or I could change it before???=0) I don't want my work to cause confusion in that way. Thank you again!

    Hey, there, it sounds like it is about to get very exciting. You will have to do the next episodes!!

    Appears to be quite an interesting write. You have weaved good words to give a colorful and mystic touch to your story. Great potentials are hidden in your writing but without knowing the aim and objective of your story it is very difficult to rate it properly. Thank you for your kind comments on my Poem My Prayer on Xmas day. Love and best wishes...Ravindra.... Kristina Reid-Hansen

    Very interesting, makes me want to know what is going to happen next, very nice. You commented on one of my poems, do you see me, and asked what I was talking about. It is about faith and God and asks if he exists. Just to answer your question. Good job, ~Chris

    The tale in prose would be much more interesting. I think root and route are two different words. Root we use a root of the tree in Botany and or in linguistic a root of the verb but route is a direction of a way. I think you are right in using route and out as rhymes. Sorry but I disagree with Nick.

    Huge amount of potential here. I really enjoyed this. Screenplay potential perhaps?

    A pleasant read, looks like the story should be interesting too, note to the worldly, out and route don't rhyme in the uk, we always pronounce route like a tree root
