"This is the way the world ends: Not with a bang but a whimper." - T.S. Eliot

I wake up.
Face down on my pillow.
Scream cought in my throat.

I sit up.
Reaching for my spiral.
It might help if i wrote.

I'm scared.
Even to close my eyes.
His face is burned behind them.

Please help me.
These words are inside me.
I need to write and release 'em.

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”

I like this it leave a bit of an edge like it doesn't give a lot of detail to tell what happened but just enough to make you think.
