Emergency Room

A Poem by Colton Warr

I tried....


Emergency Room  

A Poem by Colton Warr 

Rush her in, get her on the operating table

Get every man, woman, and child, anyone who is able 

She's in very bad condition 

I must give her my all to get her stable 

Hand me my tools, the prayers, love letters, and flowers 

Hand me everything I've done, the countless hours

I have to try and save her without her permission

I have to try, because of love, her heart is now ours

Quiet everyone, let me listen to her heart 

I hear it beating as it tries to tear itself apart 

"No!" I scream and I grab the knife to start the incision

I can't stop now, I've poured my soul into this from the start 

As I open her up I can see the damage 

A carnage that cannot be concealed by some bandage 

Leave it broken or try and fix it, a haunting decision

I told myself there was something left in you to salvage 

An assistant warned, "you could lose apart of yourself" 

I uttered "I know, but she needs my help" 

Little did I gather, I stood no chance

But I could not ignore everything that I had felt 


The blood and gore of it all spewed 

A trail of pain left by our feud 

The way you rejected me was rude

You were the only thing I ever wanted to view

Your hands start to twitch and eyes roll back 

I tried, my love, but could never get us on track

And for my efforts all I caught was flak 

Everything you had, but love you lacked 


"I'm here" I whisper "I'm right here" 

I hoped that that would remove your fears 

I could see you ending, your chest started to slow

And so, within my eyes, developed a tear

You rejected the love, the medication 

You made yourself numb with your suffocation

You destroyed yourself and took us down too

I just wanted to be your salvation 

I lean back and wipe the sweat from my eyes 

My hand falls to my mouth as I hold it back, I try

The life between us has stopped 

I ask to have the room, simply, to cry 

After they all leave I lean into your expired corpse 

My lips hover over your own "I was completely yours" 

I kiss you, thinking one last breath could do it

Yet, dead our love remains, I couldn't save what I truly adored
