Searing pain in my
Left shoulder is making it hard
To keep myself 'wake
L auren?' Ask I, sick and woozy
I see fuzzy shapes leaning over me
F eeling my forehead
E van,' One shapes says softly, 'Lauren's dead.'
Reality is fading
Vision going dim
B rief flashes
R eality and dreams intermingle
E van? Please stay with us.'
A nother, distant voice.
T hey want to put you down,
H elp your case, fight it.'
E ven if she pleads, it's difficult.
Funny how it works
Turns out that 'light' is only
A thought and a false hope
G oodbye…' I sigh
O nly a few hours
Now, and I'll be off
E van isn't waking up this time.
