Red soaked sheets displaying trauma
lay underneath them was a friend.
as the life flashed before the eyes
I chanced upon the innocent face
laying still in this moment unexpected
oblivious to the surroundings
a sense of whiteness had descended
Consoling myself and my heart
he would stay along
I did everything I could
to keep my calm
but alas. It is never there
when you want it to.
Bloody and messy I prayed
all night long
asking for only one thing
to help my friend along.
