Crash My Love

July 6, 2011
Flying at the speed of light
Not a care in the world
Not a moment to spare
Just the car and I

I watch the road disappear
In my review mirror
The red shine of the lights
How they’ve lost their luster

Every street sign
Just a blur
Every guard rail
Just a challenge

The radio is blaring
But all I hear are his words
Words that tore us apart
Words I had thought for months

A straight shot to the corner
Silent and still the world around me
The tears sent me to a new world
A fuzzy and blurred universe

Bright and blinding
What is this?
Blurs in the windshield
Where am I?

Stillness in a new place
Grass in at eye level
Voices yelling
Glass shattered

Coughing up red splatters
This is the end
I know it
All I see is red

A yank
A tug
I lay counting the stars
Instead of regrets

The tapping of nurse’s shoes
Sudden silence
Sudden darkness
Just like before

How’d she survive?
A lab coat says
How will she live?
A father’s voice pleads

An ending caused this
Tragedy it is
A miracle began this
A second chance
