The Right Time

As I untie the blindfold

That sealed my eyes

In darkness,

I know

That this was in me.

Maybe I was waiting

For the right time.

With this on my mind,

I make my kidnapper

Unconscious,

Search him

For the keys to the van.

I lock the doors

And heave open the trunk,

Making sure to leave the keys

Outside the car.

After making sure he's still out cold,

I turn and run.

Away from him,

From the van.

I will never see him again.

I need to find Amber and Carina

And go back to mom.

Nothing else matters--

Nothing at all.

The End
