I only had 3 to enter this contest, though more would, but oh well. I will feature all 3 of the ones that entered work.
Do you know my name, my face,the way I look
when I laugh. Do you me, should I know yours,
like the sky know the sun.Do you know me like
the killer know his blade.Do you know my name,
the sound it makes,the way your teeth shivers
in fear,clinched in hate. you do know my name,
and I do yours bother.

Oz the great and powerful
Is that what they call you?
Don't let it get to your head.
You know that emerald city of yours?
'tisn't really emerald innit?
Just paint the darn thing green and you'll save at least fifteen percent or more
How long have you stayed in Oz?
Look at you
A child all grown up
Inventorman Carnivalman Conman Balloonman
You create concoctions of liquid illusions
And allude to greatness.
Or the size of your head
The thing is,
Is what runs the man
And you've got enough to run a marathon
But you're also a coward
And that trips the man
And you've come in last every single time.

My heart pounds like a kettle drum and thunder-
My spine shivers like it's the dead of winter, shunning the warmth of summer.
The beating hurts my chest, like spikes jabbing at my flesh-
The chills fill me with an endless shiver as I wish to be free of fear giver.
How do you know my name?
I want to hide in my own shadow and cry to sleep-
I want to flee to somewhere safe, to a safe haven.
My shadow fills me with comfort as I press against them-
My want to flee makes me feel like I am not here, but in heaven.
Who told you my name?
I choose to run until I am out of breath and left gasping-
I choose to hide until you are gone and away.
I can't stop my fear as it boils over and leaves me drowning-
I can't stop looking over my shoulder as I run down the way.
Why do you know my name?
My lungs hurt from running and not being able to breathe-
My head aches from blood pounding in my head, pounding, pounding, pounding.
The pain keeps me thinking of the good times-
The pounding lets me know that my heart is still going, going, going.
Will you please forget my name?
I keep thinking you're around the corner of every turn I make-
I keep thinking that you are after someone, after me.
My sight becomes red and fuzzy as I start to feel faint-
My thoughts fill with the idea that you will leave me be.
Why do you have to know my name?
I want you to leave me alone and never return-
I want you to just disappear, to go away and just disappear.
I am afraid of what will happen to me should you catch me-
I am afraid that you will not disappear, but instead appear over and over, building up my fear.
Why do you keep saying my name?
KEEP AWAY FROM ME!
LET ME GO, PLEASE LET ME GO!
SOMEONE HELP ME, PLEASE!
WHY CAN'T ANYONE HEAR MY SCREAMS, PLEASE LET ME GO!
...Who will cry when someone says my name...?
Thanks again for the ones that took time to be a part of this. I will wait a few days to put up the new idea. I hope everyone has a good weekend.
