Broken, left behind.

Aching bones, splayed at angles never meant to be bent.

The overwhelming pain,.

Bloody crimson flowing freely.

A stuttering heartbeat skipping once.

The sting of metal sliding home.

Gasps, shallow and weak, an unstable spasm

Eyes fluttering, struggling to stay open, and failing.

Hands trembling as they reach for someone, anything, everything.

Frantic thoughts running violently through a bruised head, lost to panic.

The body wracked with shakes and shivers of a mock seizure

The darkness slowly closes in, the spoken name falling on deaf ears.
