he will never talk with her again

7 Jan

something was wrong

 

I could tell

by the hard knocking

on my door

 

we were always close friends

and today

he needed a friend

in the worse way

 

my friend and his wife

had argued the night before . . .

the arguments were about

nothing important

he was just in one of his moods

 

he became so heated

with unkind words that

 

she left the house

got into her car

and drove off in order to

cool down

 

within  minutes

a car drifted head-on

into her lane

 

the ambulance came

it took too long

 

she died in

the flames

of the wreck

 

my friend

now in my home

could only say a word or two

between sobs

 

i did gather enough

words to hear him say

 

“i would give up everything

to have her back

for one more day”
