white water rafts

White water rafts stream down my face,
thud-thud, thud-thud
They leave cuts on my eyes and scrapes on my cheeks.
Door shut, heart exposed. Fear settles in.
thud-thud, thud-thud
I push to knock it out, but I have no energy, no control.
I shake and tremble and fall over, again.
A fire awakens to kill my soul. please, it burns.
Clenched fists, I suppress a muffled help.
thud-thud, thud.
