NaPoWriMo Day 23 – Hurry

Hurry

hurry now
follow
the war drums coming
over the ridge
hurry now
try to outrun what hunts
in the darkest midnight
once pretended to be spring
within the queen of fairies’ command
thought once to join
only met unfortunate betrayal
bittersweet like every blinded eye
turned to the sky
hurry now
follow
the war drums coming
over the ridge
hurry now
try to outrun what hunts
in the darkest midnight
where the fairies came to die
as the wheel of time pulled
tighter until it came to a shuddered stop
in scream against growing war drums
hurry now
follow
the war drums are coming
ever closer still
hurry now
try to outrun what hunts
in the darkest midnight
