Ambulance

Ambulance

A poem/song I wrote a month or two ago for my friend.

Chapter 1

No, no

what’s going on?

My stomach’s in my throat

This has to be wrong.

Tell me it’s not true

Tell me it’s not true

tell me, tell me, tell me

Oh, please tell me it’s not true.

I can see it in my mind

Those lights are flashing fast

Why were people so unkind?

Now you’re drowning in your past.

Who did this to you?

Who did this to you?

Tell me, tell me, tell me

Tell me, who did this to you?

I keep checking my phone

No messages appear

I think of you, all alone

The pain that no one could hear

Tell me you’re alive

Tell me you’re alive

Tell me, tell me, tell me

Please, just tell me you’re alive.

I want to hear you gush about space again

I want to see the excitement on your face when you talk about something you love

I want to see that icon flash up on my phone and read your messages

I want to understand

I want you to trust me

I want you to live

I want you to want to live

I want you

to want to live

I want for you to be happy

My friend,

Please don’t leave me in an ambulance.

    This is so powerful and written from pure, raw emotion. I absolutely loved it, and I really hope that your friend is ok now. I can’t imagine the terror and misery I would feel if I nearly lost a close friend, and it makes me so glad that you did not lose yours.

    I could tell this was written completely from the heart and impacted me although I have not experienced something like this. Every time an ambulance drives by my house I make sure it’s not going in the direction of anyone I love and I have dreams about if it did. Was this written from an experience that you had? If it’s too personal I completely understand, feel no pressure to answer the question. 🙂

      It was; I penned this after a friend of mine was rushed to hospital in an ambulance after a suicide attempt.

        Wow, I can’t even come close to imagining what that must be like. This is a beautiful poem and very impressive especially since it was written at a time like that. I really hope your friend was alright.

          Thank God, they’re still here. I’m so glad they didn’t leave me here because they mean the world to me.

            That’s so good to hear. I hope you can help them find the light in their life and help them see all the reasons to live. 🙂 Sometimes leaving is the easiest choice but that doesn’t mean it’s the right one.
