surviving

i can see the moment
frozen in time
i can feel the flash burn
of fuel igniting
i can hear the scream of metal
feel glass shards in skin
that one flash moment of knowledge
where you understand
your life is done

and every time
i wake screaming
tangled in damp sheets
surviving isn’t always a simple thing
