Cannibal

Cross my heart and hope to survive
And hope he doesn't skin me alive
Need food, need water
Need shelter as the sun gets hotter
I did my best to avoid him
But no matter how far I run or swim
Always, he catches up to me
Leaving me no chance to flee


A/N: Thanks for reading. This was a writing prompt I decided to try, and the topic was: Write an acoustic poem using the word "Cannibal" on what you would do if you were stuck on a desert island with your worst enemy. Let me know what you guys thought! Much appreciated!
