Dread filled steps;

Nervous silence;

Hands twisting in your shirt.

No.

You don't want to go.

Ten steps left,

Stop.

It's getting hard to walk.

Nine, eight, seven, six, five steps left,

Four steps left,

Stop.

You have to keep going.

Three steps left,

No.

You don't want to go,

No.

They make you go.

Two steps left,

One last step,

No!

You can't go,

You can't go farther.

Last step,

And now,

You're Gone
