Shies Away

She tries to shy away,
But they don't care;
They just pull harder on her hair.
They smirk and snicker,
As her crying grows thicker.
She pulls from them,
Tries to sneak away.
But they won't let her shy away.

She tries to shy away,
As they yank her arm into the car.
She doesn't know who they are,
Only imagines the things they'll try;
Trying, but failing to put it from her mind.
She reaches for a stick,
Tries to get away.
But they won't let her shy away.

She tries to shy away.
But the barrel is against her temple.
They argue for a bit,
But it seems so far away.
Her mind is panicking.

She tries to shy away,
But there's a dagger at her throat.
Ready to slice-
Ready to dice.
She wants to-
But she can't shy away.

She tries to shy away,
To live another day.
But a large hand is covering her mouth-
What a day- what a day.
From sad to sadder, as the day fades.
If only she could shy away.

The cops finally came,
But it's already too late.
They take a step closer, BANG!
Rushing, trailing, almost got them.
Kidnappers; freedom thieves; murderers.
Forevermore and a day dead is she.
A young girl's life they took;
Blew her away.
If only she could have shied away.

I like the story you convey here. It's very realistic. I feel the panick. And the rush of emotions. I'm not so sure if shying away is exactly how I'd convey this person to be doing. Maybe like running away would seem more realistic than it already it is. But that's my opinion. I do, however, enjoy the repition of that line. Well-written.
