Favorite Quote:
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they go right. You believe lies so you eventually trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart, so that better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe

Laying on the cold hard ground,
Looking up at the dark night sky,
The grass is wet.
I can barely move.
I struggle to keep my eyes open,
But I can’t
As they close,
I hear footsteps,
I don’t know who they belong to.
I’m afraid to move.
I turn my head slightly,
I see a figure in the smoke
It’s coming closer
I m frozen with fear.
Just barely breathing!
As he stand over me,
Crying seems like my only option,
But I can’t!
He’s thinking he has won,
I see his hand in the mist.
He’s reaching for my arm,
No! I’m screaming,
Not like this!
Just one last fight!
There is much more to do!
A family,
A white picket fence.
I can’t see his face,
Only his figure,
He’s backing away.
Go away! Far away!
As I lay there,
His figure dissipates.
I can hear the sirens,
I see the wreck,
I can feel the pain.
There’s a man,
He says it’s alright.
I’ve cheated death!
And I now know,
I shouldn’t have sent the last text.
