Collision

Col-li-sion. Moun. 

Meaning "an instance of one moving object or person striking violently against another."

A simple collision can change everything, in every way.

A wave colliding with helpless sand at their feet on their first date.

His lips colliding with hers.

Once.

Twice.

Over dinner.

After a movie.

When he gets down on one knee.

At the altar.

When they find out about the baby. 

Later, when he gets the diagnosis,

about the malignant cells colliding and multiplying in his body.

And,

One last time,

their lips collide.

In a hospital bed.

Hi! My name is Katherine. 

In our Creative Writing class, we have this assignment, 12 days of poetry.

Every day, we draw someone's name at random and have to write them a poem about absolutely anything. 

I wrote this on day three or four, and it just really stuck with me. 

It sort of came out of nowhere, and it isn't a true story. 

But I still would like to share it. 

:)
