Its as if I can see you rolling on that veld
With your head hitting on the stones.
Its as if I can hear your loud cry as the trees keep on ripping your clothes.
I can see that car rolling after you.
Its as if I can hear this prayer in your grief.
Its as if I can hear your heart shout "I jumped out of that car, why is it rolling over me?"
Its as if I can see your tears running down your cheeks.
Its as if I can see you crawling on your knees trying to be safe.
That "boom" sound made by your car
Your loud cry accompanied by that "Why is this happening to me?" question.
With dark red fabric Thus the flame.
All left me in tears ...
