Saving Grace

Footsteps coming and going

I hear them all around

Steps so thunderous and enormous.

Wow, I'm actually being carried through the air,

Strips of lights moving above me.

Now comes the sharp prick.

My arm grows cold.

Next are the blows to the chest,

I actually felt my ribs fold, then break from the pressure.

The last thing I hear is someone say "she's gone."

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead
