She’d been running for a longtime.

She’d never known a peaceful moment.

Rest, was always greedily snatched by the second.

She its effects in the marrow of her bones.


She’d hide.

Convinced this time that she’d finally be safe

Only to discover that while she slept,

They came. Surrounded.


At last she cried out.

Energy nearly expended.

He heard her cry.

His light scattering the darkness.


Lifting her weary head with His hand she looked around.

Where once was burden ground

Jagged rocks, that had cut her feet.

She saw grass and gravel path leading to a table.


A feast made for two,

In the presence of her enemies.
