I Told You to Be Careful! Hit & Run


I told you to be careful!

Bent fender

shredded plastic

flying metal

two riderless Reeboks, too slow to keep up with you

stay fixed on the street

macabre

I told you to be careful!

Did anyone tell him

to look, listen, slow

No!!

blood soaked asphalt

broken head- such pretty hair , your pretty hair

what has he done…

broken dreams

broken heart

time stopped

I told you to be careful

you flew so far

one might have thought it better

than to be crushed

but it didn’t help

to fly without wings

without brakes

without time to think that

time was over for you

and my world flew with you

and our hearts stopped as one

I told you to be careful!

  1. I almost broke down writing it. I have two daughters, and sometimes my nightmares reflect these kinds of things. But NO, thank GOD, it is not based on experience. This came from a news report of a teen girl who was hit via hit and run. Her tennis shoes stayed stock still, but she went flying. It made me sad, and wonder how I would feel I was the mother of that girl. So, that’s where this came from.
