be hurt, words

the song be hurt came on

lovely little ode to it being okay to be broken

the world seems to slow down as i sped happily down the highway

that is when the semi changed lanes into a black pick up

the shiny silver trailer exploded as the music played

i watched it unfold

as the trailer hit the truck a long wave passed through it

the solid not used to such fluid movement and realization dawned on it as an explosion filled the air

raining metal and produce like the worst of all roman gods

and still the morose and somehow happy song echoed on

at complete odds with the chaos around me

it was a matter of seconds stretched like taffy at the state fair

i was far enough over to watch without participation skills being needed

sometimes music is magic
