I Remember

I Remember

A Poem by Evelynn

I remember the city
I remember the lights
I remember her face
I remember the fight

The smell of burning rubber
The crash of two cars
The heat of fire
The end of her spark

 Begging her to wake
Hearing her last breaths
Crying because on this day
She became Death’s

Tears of people dressed in black
As she is passed
And of all the flowers in her grave
I placed the last

Sad places, you took the reader with in the words. You described the accident and final place to say good bye. Some scene of a life. Become a permanent part of us. Thank you Evelynn for sharing the powerful words and thoughts.

Quiet dramatic story in poem. Very clear picture what was happen and how you feel about it. Very honest and strong.

You are welcome.
This is good - it would be even better if you reworked the third stanza - the impact of the fourth is completely dowsed by the declaration - "She became Death’s"...which is a pity because the fourth carries the whole poem Evelynn
