Clomp clomp.
The whispers of secrets
hitting the light
Like horse hooves on cobblestone.

Clomp clomp.
The Pattering footsteps
whooshing of wheels
Olden carriages of pain.

Clomp clomp.
Laughter and chattering
Insults are made
A horse's face with despair.


Mock me.


Thwack thwack!
Arrow in the shoulder
Crack in the heart
Orders from the darkness.

Thwack thwack!
Slapsticks from the lifeline
Whips from the phone
Forced development of rage.

Thwack thwack!
Fear is taking over
Life has lost hope
A soul is in destruction.


Hit me.


Neigh. Neigh.
With desperate searches
And feeling lost
Only one answer is found.

Neigh. Neigh.
Feelings of fright and tears.
Gone are the years
Happiness is mistaken.

Neigh. Neigh.
The one final second.
Only one breath.
Please release me from my chains.


Shatter me.


Beat.

Beat.

Beat.

The Truth is always harder.
Pain comes from the heart.
Guilty are the wounded
Who fell.

But still we rise.
 
Based off of this image:
I took the lighting of the image to mean a sadness so this piece is a representation of bullying and the effect it can have on people. The narrator is bullied for his horse-like looks and eccentric demeanor. I think you can infer the rest.
