She ran from them, but they were relentless.
She tried to escape.
She tried to evade them, attack after attack. Still they overwhelmed her, betraying sanctuaries.
Her chest constricted.
She tried to appease them, offering after offering. Still they plagued her, negating the euphoria.
Her lungs ached.
She tried to stop them, parley after parley. Still they terrorized her, tormenting with whispers.
Her mind caved.
She tried to drown them, night after night. Still they pursued her, shaking off the burning fluid.
Her head pounded.
She tried to harm them, day after day. Still they haunted her, disregarding the blood that flowed.
Her wrists stung.
She tried to expel them, time after time. Still they clung to her, refusing to surrender their hold.
Her throat burned.
She tried to poison them, when nothing else worked. Still they survived, oblivious to damage.
Her body weakened.
Succumbing to the darkness, she tried a final resort.
She tried to eradicate them, using chains of rope. Still they remained, seeking the ****.
Her breaths ceased.
Her demons died with her.
