Crash

By 10th March 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

The lights turned green, the road was clear,
The car moved forward, turning right,
I was sitting in the back,
A police car followed close behind.
Suddenly a car appeared,
Ignored the lights, smashed in our side.
I was thrown across the seat;
Nobody wore seatbelts then.
I was sure that I had died
And looked down at me being thrown;
Then I slipped back into my skin.
We had just gone for a drive,
Luckily we’d all survived.
Nobody was really hurt
Though neither car could be repaired.
None of us had been so scared
And when in cars I still have fears
Of that night, after all these years.
