The Day It Ended

The day it ended
we took a wrong turn
Headed down the wrong street

He said 'Stay close.
Take my hand.'

I was trying to be brave
not noticing the black SUV

It blended into the sky
didn't make a sound

They rolled windowdown
let the bullets fly

He fell first
then so did I

We lay there motionless
and then.

We died.
