JUST BY YOU
A feeling of emptiness
A dying body lying helpless
Looks like my frame
Poor bewildered me
Dad kept sobbing, pacing and panting
As I kept following and asking
Why is everyone saying “so long”?
I feel perfectly fine
Stop crying dad
Just look by your left, I am just by you
Where are they taking my form to?
Why are you entering the emergency unit dad?
What is Sophie, Anna and Kyra doing here?
Why are pipes connected to their mouths?
Stop telling them I am dead
Can you not see or hear me?
I am just right in front of you, wearing the dress you bought me on my last birthday
Am I truly dead?
Now I remember, I remember how we got here
I am so sorry dad
The fault was all mine
I drove them all to the emergency unit
It was after we shared the drink in the bottles
We just wanted to have fun
For our social lives were neglected
I thought I felt sober after the drink,
I controlled the wheels perfectly
Just like you thought me, dad
but the music only grew louder
The seat belts were just too far from us
I meant to take us home
But the car suddenly developed wings
It was the drink, then the car, now we are here
Hopes dashed and expectations crushed
I want to apologize and make you all know how miserable I am
Being mindful that I cannot be heard nor seen
For I have become a ghost
