Monday''s Phone Text

Recommended Posts

pawn shop

She text me on my phone

not the usual happy message though....


I thought we were going to have a few drinks


there had been a car accident

and she was now in the emergency room


Hopped into my car......found Marlborough hospital

thanks to the many blue signs

with arrows saying 'hospital'

that were all along the main road


Went through the building's sliding doors

walked down the solemn hallway

to 'the E.R'

people sat there calmly, as if waiting for a dentist


I got buzzed through a locked door

and entered the wing....looking in rooms.....

where the in-patients rested in beds

doctors, nurses, other visitors


There Ellen was......through the curtain........laying there....

pajama top.....wires on her.....machine hook up........

I smiled....she smiled back.....

as I approached, she closed her eyes tight

and began to sob

I held onto her outstretched hand


she had absolutely no one, at that moment,

except me, to rely upon

such is our friendship

Hello Jonathan. I hope you are fine. I haven't seen you for some time, and then you come with a poem inspired by a bad happening. I am sorry to hear that, and I hope the girl is fine, and how nice that she had a friend next to her in that moment.


I hope you are well my friend.


Nice expressed poem.
