Wreckage

I take a huge giant a** step
And I realize I’ve gone too far
I’ve gone over the edge.
I’m gone
All my mistakes have led me here
Where you’ll never get me back.
You try.
I see you, though your fuzzy.
I want to see you clearer.
The smile on your lips
The laugh in your voice
The way your hair falls in your face.
I’m blind.
And you know it.
You’re calling my name, but I can’t hear you.
I feel your hand grasp mine and for one wild moment I think I’m back…
The sound returns to my ears.
I hear your voice…so loud…. screaming…. you’re screaming…. for help.
My vision clears and I see your face for the last time.
Tears are falling down your pink cheeks. One of them falls on my face, hot.
Your breath fogs in the cold winter air.
I hear sirens.
I notice our car on the side of the road, totaled.
I look back at you
And remember your happy smiling face on our wedding.
The way we danced
I held your hands
In mine
And now
Your holding my hands in yours
And I’m happy this is how I end
In your hands.
