You Faded AwayA Poem by Vin
Tears beating against the ground,
turning heads from all around.
Sidewalk completely covered in blood,
one last heartbeat, one last thud.
There he lays, where everyone can see,
but few people fall to his side on their knees.
Looking down at his face so pale,
it can't be over, no, you can't bail!
Begging, please, you can't leave,
I need you, why can't anyone see?
Your hand so cold, as you let go,
you want to speak but can't let us know.
Bullets shatter every fiber in my mind,
blood soaking through your shirt and running out of time.
Gasping one last time, as the light leaves your eyes,
life fading quickly, God won't listen to our cries.
Trying to tell you that it's okay,
but we all know, it's not going to end that way.
Shaking at the wind so cold up my spine,
you can't leave me, you can't die!
This can't happen, no, not today,
as I sat on my knees and watched your life slip away.
