"Your struggles will lead you to your triumphs which make you who you are." - Cassandra Clark

He has caught me.
My back hits the wall.
He is closing in,
Darkness starts to surround me.
In one last attempt,
I look left,
I look right.
As I am about to give up
Accept the consequences.
A corridor appears
A light at the end of the tunnel
I take it
He darts after me
Going left
Going right

I lost him
Sighing in relief
I slow my pace
It's within my grasp
I'm almost free
I can feel the light soaking into my skin
It flickers for a second
Then disappears
In its place
A wall

His footsteps
Once soft and distant
Come closer
Getting louder

A shadow forms in the darkness
There is no way out

He has finally caught me

The author's comments:
The poem is about how if you lie you will eventually get caught.

This poem is really good and I think you can also do more with it! Well, it's really good and has a lot of symbolism.
