The screaming in my head

And panic in my chest

And the rapid rising and falling of my shattered ribs

Told me I wasn't dead

The sharp pain in my left knee

And the rattle of my punctured lung

And the constant cracking of my broken collar bone

Told me I wasn't dead

The jigsaw puzzle memories

And the tenderness of my grazed heart

And the agony of my fractured shoulder blade

Told me I wasn't dead

Yet.
