Accident

Accident

a Poem by Raquel Swann

From the corner of my eye

As I cross the intersection

Headlights approach

Time slows to a crawl

Flashes of memories 

Dance across my mind

A montage of my life

Places I’d never travel

People I’d never meet

Successes I’d never achieve

When I had the chance.

Time waits for no one

Why did I assume 

I was any different. 

Screeching of tires

Metal against metal

Last moments of regret.
