I have always believed that i would die in a car crash

It will be a cold one for me
Looking at the sky as I lay bleeding
My heart begins to slow
I look around for someone to take away the pain

A tear falls knowing that it’s the end
I want to sob like a child
My blood feels warm on me
I see the steam rise from the pool that surrounds

I see the people that I will miss
I hope that I’ve done them proud
I don’t want to go
Fighting a losing battle because I am so frail

Twisted metal grabs at me
Broken glass pillows my head
My heart is fighting now
I try to move but my body doesn’t want to

I look into the sky again
Hoping what I believe will be there
I hope he’ll take me
I look around for him to take away my pain

I beg that I’ll be different
Changing my life to better be loved
I notice my blood is sticky
The sky is black and  I prepare to sleep eternally

nicely written--I hope in writing, it helped ease your fear--that last line says a lot---I have my own fear of how that day will happen--maybe we all do..

O.k., I am not stalking you. I am just catching up on my reading. :) This one too, I like very much. Flow, format, concept... And, I love your comment back to zephyr ---- it's not the 'going' it's the 'after'! Too true! Myself, I fear the feelings I will have of knowing that I'm leaving my children (no matter what age they are--I hope VERY old!)...that's the worst part to me (Oh, and the grandkids, oh & the great-grandkids...).

I guess it's something we'll never truly know until we are there. All we can do is hope that the people we love know how much they mean to us. Oh and i hope to go out with a lot less pain. once again, thank you so much for the wonderful comments and i love your work as well.

Saturday Night

Never feared death just not in a hurry. I look at it as the next big adventure. Very well written poem and quite captivating. I will read more of your work as time permits. SN
