The Hospital IV Awaits

Poetry By: In The Hands Of
Young adult



Dying in a car accident, the driver had a heart attack, and the person is saying their last goodbyes.

I watch your hands shake at the wheel
Cold sweat trickles down your ghost pale face
Fear shoots deep inside my gut
You jerk violent, my heart begins to race.

I'm sitting here, gripping my seat
So tightly, I think I've done torn through
the cloth with my nails.
Your eyes roll and show me their whites
I scream as both your heart and my sanity fails.

Shut, shut, shut your eyes.
Close, close, close those eyes.
Forever more, forever more.
Shut, shut, shut your eyes.
Close, close, close those eyes.
Forever more, forever more.

Opened for one last time
Being rushed into some unknown place
Staring so many lights passing so quickly
The hospital IV awaits...
me.

Oh sweet mother I'm sorry for not making it
Dearest father, I never really hated you for one minute
Innocent brother, I always loved you through that shit.
Oh lover, please don't follow me through this.

Shut, shut, shut your eyes.
Close, close, close those eyes.
Forever more, forever more.
Shut, shut, shut your eyes.
Close, close, close those eyes.
Forever more, forever more.

Whoever is holding my hand so tightly right now.
Thank you for being with me on my way out.

Unfinished. Written November 2006.
