Critical Care

by Destiny Shields
(Newville, PA 17241 )

Barely breathing
Is the pump still reading
Fading out one way
Going dead another way
You hear pump pump
Should hear bump, bump
Pushing down
Seeing frowns
Everyone's gathering around
The sight of tears
You weren't even here a year
Used to be here
You're never near
I forget sometimes
You being gone all this time
Wishing I wasn't the only one
Coming up again
I hate having to see it
Why couldn't you stay here with me?..
