Hold On!


You hear the thunder
You see the light
140, stormy night
The reason that your hurting
Is because we got in a fight

I told you to stop drinking
You said “But it’s cool! ”
I told you if you didn’t
It would be over for me and you

You tell me that you love me
I yelled I didn’t care
You turned around tears in your eyes
And then ran down the stairs

I then heard the screen door slam
And the roaring of your truck
I went chasing after you but could
Barely see because of all the fog.

I heard a loud crash up ahead
Praying its not you
I turned my high beams on again
And said “Oh my God it can’t be true! ”

10 Ft from your beat up truck
I found you almost dead
I tell you that “ I love you”
Blood is running from your head

I ran to my car and called for help
Then ran back to hold you in my arms
I tell you that you’ll be okay
And think “this is all my fault”

The flashing lights of hope arrive
I follow in my car and
On the way to the hospital
I begin to pray to God

When I arrived at the hospital
They told me that your were already gone
But they told me that you said “ I love her,
Tell it was not her fault”.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
