Wildfire

You ran wildly through fire.

Mesmerized by the flame, 

   I ran too.

For the shadow that never left my side,

  I'd die too.

Caught in the crossfire again,

my lungs burn as i exhale your name.

One car, One road, One tragedy

Two girls, Two drinks, Too many

Three doctors, Two surgeries, One life.

Time lost in a flash of an eye

as did the sparks between you and I.

smoke clears and time heals,

I have a lot of life left here.
