One moment is all it takes

Imagine accepting losing everything in one moment. Its easier than it sounds, there’s no time to think, no time to scream.

I watched it, I watched as we crashed, how did he think we’d get under, how did he how did he. Watched as the bridge came startlingly close to their heads, watched as the glass shattered, frozen mid air in time. So it’s true, I thought, everything does go slow.

Imagine one scream. Then silence. Silence is not golden, silence is the sound of fear.

Imagine blood. Imagine shaking and crying and more blood and the hands are shaking and the blood is dripping and I have to get off, away from this nightmare. Things like this don’t happen to people like us. They just don’t.

Imagine everyone alive, safe and not seriously injured.
Imagine the fear that’s inside, every time.
