Here is another poem. I have hesitated putting it here, but i don't know why.
Fear in the Night
16 May 2012
Last night I awoke in fear
Remembering what put me here.
It could have happened yesterday
It was so vivid in my mind.
It happened so fast in broad daylight
But I never saw it coming.
I was hit and hit hard.
Then my brother flew in to cover me.
All he got for his efforts was getting hit, too.
I remember seeing him with blood flowing,
From his head. It spurted and
splattered until I thought he was dead.
He was in bad shape and got to go home.
So many years and I miss him still.
He didn’t make it you see,
all because he tried to save me.
When awoke the sweat was dripping
And my heart was pumping hard.
As I reached for my meds I wondered why
Why was it him instead of me?
How long would these nightmares last?
My meds are here but they don’t always work
I see my therapist once a month.
But still I wonder why was it him and not me.
I don’t know how much more I can take
of this remembering and seeing his face
and all of that blood along with his fate.
All because he tried to save me.
Early detection saves lives. It did mine!
