Protection

Location

The silence creeps through the house,

until I was awaken by a sound.

He was bursting into tears,

as she laid there so still.

I did not know what to do,

thats when my heart broke into two.

 

Her skin was cold as ice,

as I hold her hand by my side.

Her lips was so purple,

I just couldn’t understand.

 

Door slammed open with a thump,

made me quickly jump up.

They came rushing in.

Could they save her in the end?

They picked her up,

as if she was light as a feather.

 

I watched as they carried her away,

as the tears came rushing down my face.

I turned and saw my sister,

it was now my duty to protect her.

 

Her eyes turned dark red,

too young to comprehend.

I pulled her close,

as she took it all in.
