Gunshots in the distance,
Screams from right there,
Yelling from the soldiers,
The sound of footsteps,
Patter, patter, patter,
The sound of water dripping in the distance,
The screams get louder,
You realize your terrible fate,
You remember the horrible images you saw as you entered,
You hear the angry voices of your enemy as they yell in a foreign tongue,
The lights are bright,
Your heart beats faster,
Your eyes sting,
You’re covered with sweaty blood,
Your bruises start to appear as you stand there awaiting danger,
The chains rise higher in the enemies hands,
They hit your skin with indescribable pain,
You keep your pain hidden,
Yet you know they see right through your delicate facade,
You’re standing there with your friends,
Your family,
And others who you don’t even know,
You remember the way they removed you from your homestead,
You remember the blood,
You remember the pain you felt,
You remember the bodies you saw,
The screams you heard,
You remember how much you wondered why they were doing these things,
You remember when your father explained everything,
And you realized that they had kept you in the dark,
You feel the pain now as you remember your brothers fate,
Now you’ve jumped back into reality,
Your fear has risen yet again,
As they lash you with the chains,
You’ve lost all hope and are slipping into insanity,
You finally break your careful facade,
You let out a blood curdling scream,
The chain hits you one last time as you collapse,
Tears running down your face,
You let out one last breath and you barely utter the words “I love you,” before the darkness overtakes you,
And all you can hear is the faint echo of the enemies voice,
Finally you’ve entered silence.
