when i saw it, it was just past midnight. the residual blur of every flashing light. red and blue, pulsing in your driveway. holding my breath, keeping tears at bay. i just couldn't tell if it was you out there. my lungs constricting, denying despair. you've been my best friend since forever. you'd always been there through whatever. they wouldn't let me past the caution tape. this time, they wouldn't let you escape. i love you but i can't help you this time. i wish i could. my heart breaks for you. i love you more than anyone else could. i love you, too. i love you like hell, chica.
