On August 16th of 2008 I fell off a balcony at a dance club.. memories flash in my head of that night and flashes of the healing after have been occurring.. Here's the poem I came up with a few days ago about it...

Hanging out with friends just havin a good time
I decide I wanna go dancin and I start to whine

Little nat brat got her way that night
But the end result was a terrible fright

My best friend begged for us not to go
I had my mind securely set though

We went downtown to a club to dance
Drank it up like it was my last chance

Got in an argument and I ended up alone
The details sadden me to my lil bones

The bartender comes over and hands me a drink
Said it was free so I drank and did not think

That's the last thing I remember happening
Then I wake up in a hospital bed, it was quite baffling

I thought I had been in a car wreck
Oh it sure hurt to move my neck

My mom was standing there silently crying
My husband took my hand and started replying

No wreck had occurred, I had actually fallen
A concrete staircase ...a story down the bottom

My head split open above my left temple
Brain bleeding in five spots ..cringing mental

Shoulder tendons split completely apart
My neck was severally whiplashed ..oh my heart

A few stories came about of how I fell
I'll never know the truth... The owner wouldn't tell

I now hold this scar that looks like a dent on my head
As I lay me down to sleep...I still can't go to bed

Thanks for reading

Hmmm, I do like the fact that you compiled these words on behalf of a what seemed to be a terrible accident.
It takes a great deal of strength to form such letters from the emotional self...

I like it. thats all i wanted to say.

Hey thanks for replying my friends.
I've tried a few times to try and write this out as an actual short story... But I just couldn't do it.. Making the fall rhyme seemed to help me better write this..

Memories still plague my brain always drivin me insane ...

Thank you all for reading
