It Only Took A Moment For My World To End

Poetry By: Lady Wolf

Last night, my officer was hit by a drunk driver. His car was hit on the driver's side and it did a complete 360. He's all right now, but in a lot of pain. The second I saw it happen, this poem flashed through my mind.

I never thought my heart could stop,

by just a sight alone.

I never thought my world could end,

till I watched metal crush into bone.

That moment of deafening silence,

When all I want to do is cry.

That moment of paraylizing fear,

When all I can do is pray that you're alive.

I see the glass break, and it feels like my heart,

I hear the screech of tires, in one moment my world's been ripped apart.

They won't let me run to you,

afraid the car will explode,

They won't let me try and save you,

when did it suddenly get so cold?

Why aren't you moving?

Has time really frozen still?

Why did that guy drive drunk

and decide you were the one to kill?

The ambulance is here now,

please say he'll be all right!

They're taking you away now,

leaving me trapped in this terrible night.

I walk past the vehicle,

the carriage of your demise,

I see blood on the pavement and part me starts to die.

I don't sleep at all that night,

Too worried to even think,

I feel the pain slicing me,

because some demon decided to drink.

I saw you in the hospital,

lying there so still,

I never told you how much I cared,

And now I never will.
