The Accident

Fragmented glass explodes, deformed metal littering road
Eerie silence envelopes scene
Mangled metal traps broken bodies within
Three moving. One still.
Death hovers, eager to terminate life
Bones once dense, durable, now fragmented, frail
Crimson blood oozes. Saturating. Pooling. Drying.
Eyes open, familiar screams register, panic suffocates
Hands reach, seeking solace to bring, no resting place found
Rescuers arrive, damaged bodies cut free
Irreparably damaged? Future uncertain.
