It wasn’t intentional.

I didn’t mean to destroy her.
My mind was racing faster than I was traveling,
believe it or not.

The road was so limited,
And my state of mind was even more narrow than what hastily pasted me.

The harder I pushed down on the breaks the tighter my heart clenched.
I felt her pain strike down throughout my whole body.

She's obliterated.
Corners crushed.
Top tilted.
Wheels wiped out.

She got the red light.

Hey, I am Katie. I just wanted to let you know that this poem... it was phenomenal. Oh my Lord. I can't even describe to you how I had chills, and I wish there was just one word to describe what I felt as I read this. It truly was an exceptional poem, absolutely perfect. Have a good day, I hope your writing grows even more. I really do wish for you to get in the magazine one day! I know you definitely can, no questions asked. :)
