Look Away

Location

Flashing lights, screaming sirens.

heart stopped, panic 

Should I follow...

Don't turn left, dont turn left

Shit.

Stomach drops, shaking starts

Park, run out, car still running

I can't breathe.

Officer approaches,

What do you mean I can't be here!? 

I NEED TO BE HERE.

People, more lights

Oh my god.

Yelling, "Why am I in hand cuffs?!"

He's not himself,

Looking, glaring at me.

Turn away, hide, its not him

It's safe.

He can't see you,

Running inside, more yelling but at me.

Why at me?! I did nothing...

Hold it together, she is scared

Thats all.

Questions asked, panic, the phone rings

People leave.

Outside, dark, no more lights

"Are you okay?"

Tears, cement, emptiness

 It wasn't him Court, it wasn't him.
