The Day Death Changed Me
The Day I died
The day before my unfortunate event I saw an old friend of mine , I hadn't seen him in months. We engaged in conversation , had a few drinks, and decided to go have dinner. This was when I found out he had a motorcycle; however, it wasn't just any motorcycle it was a crotch rocket and lime green at that. So as you can imagine my eyes and heart were already in love. He then whisked me away to our endless adventure half way across Atlanta .
The ride was invigoration. A beautiful rush. Freedom that could never be put to words. The wind was in my hair, and all I could think about was that state of ecstasy . It was a high I had never experienced in my life, and I never wanted it to end. Sadly I have to admit that time stays still for no one. So when the night ended i decided I was addicted, all I ever wanted for the rest of my life was to ride.
Then next morning I woke up to any other day the only difference was I had a heavy feeling I couldn't seem to shake. I sent it to the back of my head and ignored it (little did i know that would be the biggest mistake of my life) . I went to work and watched the day fly by me . I could't recall any customer I served or any order I took. All I knew was that I had made just enough money to buy a motorcycle jacket and that was what I was going to do .
As soon as I was home, I ran to my friends house (I wanted to ride more than I cared to live). He had already looked up the nearest Harley Davidson store , so we were set and ready to start our journey. Our first stop was a gas station , He needed to fill up his tank and I needed cigarettes. While I was getting off the bike i scratched the side of my leg on the muffler. I remember him asking if I wanted to go home and just get the jacket tomorrow. But my mind was set long before our journey started . I was going to get that jacket! Determined i replied "I can handle a few scratches and bruises, this is nothing".
That was when everything began to get weird for me . When I climbed on the back of his death machine . I saw flashes ,not of the past, but of my future. I was on the ground and blood was pouring from every limb on my body . I knew by the end of that day I would be in the hospital. I ignored this warning assuming I was going insane and watched the road ahead of me become the road behind me. I felt like Super Woman. Like I could have been flying . Ignoring the heavy feeling in my gut gave me power and and a high that I thrived for.
My right hand was wrapped around him and my left hand was on my leg. The car in front of us wasn't going fast enough for my drivers taste so we swerved to the next lane and he accelerated. That was the second of my life I knew I would die.
I flew off the back and went diving for the concrete. My body rolled and rolled . All I can remember thinking was will it ever stop? Will I live through this? Will a car run over me? Will I be saved? What will my family think , And will I get fired from my job? Luckily for me i didn't die, But the old me did.
The rolling finaly stopped and I was frozen on the ground. I looked up to see that the car behind me had stopped while it was turning into the next lane. An angel picked me up and walked to me the margin. Though many wont believe this i have to say i do , because I know I didn't have the strength to do that on my own.
My eyes looked around to take it all in ,and that was when I saw my first angel. Her beat up red car stopped a few feet away from where my body layed .She opened her door and ran to my side. Her voice was heavenly when she asked if I needed an ambulance . I told her I would be ok and that there was no need. Then I looked down. My clothes were torn to shreds. My body was covered in blood and I couldn't move my right hand or bend my left arm. Rivers poured from my eyes. I couldn't speak but she was already on the phone with an emergency dispatch. All I could do was cry .
Cars went by me staring in wonder. Officers were everywhere around me. Paramedics where rushing me into the ambulance. There where noises all around but all I could hear was the sound of my tears hitting the ground.
