The wind shrilled through her hair
making it flow like waves on a undisturbed beach.
Somehow synchronizing our steps
We left no trace of where we were going
‘cause we didn’t want to be found.
I heard a frightening sound
that sent chills up my spine like the skin was going to jump off my back.
It was her.
She was on the ground.
I dropped to my knees like the tears from my eyes.
I looked at her face that was in pain.
I somehow seemed to see all our memories flash by.
How she had loved me and I had never loved her back.
How I was stupid,
How I made her feel because of it
how she became suicidal,
and I didn’t want her to die,
But now she is.
Not by her own hands,
but by another.
A darkening shadow loomed over me.
I saw her eyes glance behind me, before they swell shut from the pain.
My own memories flashed by,
because I was sure I was going to die.
Because after all this time
I did love her,
And I now would never be able to tell her that.
My hair matted to my face as it began to rain,
I took her to my lap
I screamed for her,
And I screamed in my own pain
as a bullet passed into my veins.
