The day I became MORE

Poetry By: afatrat

A last-minute entry in Zadudet1's contest about creating a non-heaven or hell Otherworld. Okay, so this doesn't fit the requirements, but it was worth a shot anyway....Enjoy!

I see fire, I see smoke,

I see thriving weeds that choke.

Wailing sirens, funeral pyre.

Everything is growing dim.

I have the sudden urge to....swim?!

Why not? I think, I'll carry on...

I rise above the wreckage.

I see my car, on the edge,

Teetering, while they come.

The police, the witness, and then some.

I hope, that one day, I'll find out WHY.

WHY did I die?

I turn away.

What, no pearly gates or sign to point the way?!

I panic, then I run.

What am I supposed to DO?! It's done,

I can't find my way back.

Whick way's the right track?!

Lost, confused,

With nothing to lose,

I guess I'll consent to go on.

And so I run until dawn.

Then I sit awhile.

I see a girl, her heart going a million miles an hour,

Sitting in a tower,

In a mansion, of a kind.

Her young face weary and lined,

Muttering about suing,

and "what was he DOING"

and how he made her heart sore.

I was worried. What was she crying for?

So I moved forward to comfort her.

Suddenly, a whoosh, a blur,

And I'm inside her head.

Oh yeah, that's right, I'm DEAD.

Trying to process

The fact that I've possessed

A girl I used to know..... MY SISTER.

Her secret boyfriend had borrowed my car

--Ripped out the brakes, didn't ya MISTER!?--

And into town they went,

and.....POOF my sis was pregnant!

(Now let's be frank,

You can fill in the blank.)

He dumped her, then I died,

She wished life could be simplified...

Then I felt a tug

and a sort of tiny hug...

Then I realized what would happen

How I'd return to the world again........
