Masked

Trapped, hands tied, mouth taped,
Slowly I grasp consciousness
I open my eyes,

Discover a den –
Earthen ground, soiled sheets undone
On a dirty bed.

The smell makes me sick.
I want to puke. Settle. Think.
Remember what passed.


I wrote this as part of the 32nd Weekly Writing Workshop on Mugstale, exploring the theme “running away”. Click here is you want to read the rest of the story.
