My mini poem
If I had one day to live
I use it love and to give
What would you do if you did
Before your life has its lid
Don't Let Me Go
I ran my fingers along the gravestone that stood in front of me. The cold wind blew my hair from my face. I looked back at the grey old gravestone with dead flowers on it’s side. Then I moved some grass from next to the stone, laid myself down and closed my eyes. Then a shadow was created above me.
My eyes shot open like a bullet. I turned left then right. Then got up grabbed all my things and ran. I flew past all the other gravestones and felt a warm touch on my shoulder and turned to see no one.
I got out of the graveyard. Then I looked behind me. Nothing but then I felt pain like a knife stabbing me in the stomach. As soon as it felt like it came out I dropped and everything went deep black.
I opened my eyes to a strange face. I screamed and sat up. “Hey settle down there is no need to worry I found you on the ground while I was passing. You’re ok I just took you to the hospital. They said you’re fine.” He gave me kind gentle smile as I put my palms in my face. His warm hand was holding my other hand.
“Thank you but I must be going I have a little brother to look after… Oh no my car!”
I sat up quickly. The cold bed I was laying on moved as I stood. He stood up,
Grabbed my hands and ran really fast nearly carrying me.
“Stop!” I yelled like a horn. He stopped and gave me a worried face. “I can take you straight to your home.”
