I Never Thought This Day Would Come

I never thought this day would come. I only wanted to have some fun. I thought the night was forever young… I never thought this day would come. I lived through two heartbreaks, I lived through twenty-one cakes. I only wanted to see the lake… I never thought this day would come. I invited all my friends. I wanted the night to never end. I only had one more text to send… I never thought this day would come. CRASH. I should have never sent that text. I should have never sent that text. I should have never sent that text… I never thought this day would come. I was suddenly in freefall. I felt myself lose it all. I felt it go black and come back again… I never thought this day would come. I hear the beeping get louder and louder. I recognize the crying, and the absent laughter. I realize now the mess I’ve made… I never thought this day would be today.


Description

This poem is describing the process someone may go through when they take the risk of sending a text while driving, and waking up in the hospital as a consequence of their decision.
