collision

impact
  at the speed of life
  and though always cautious
    i was caught offguard
    when you sideswiped my soul

and though not quite
  head-on
  damage is severe enough
    repairs
    will be costly
      and take much time
      and i can afford
        neither

tell me
  did you single me out
  or are you
    so careless
    so blind
      that you can strike
      causing major mahem
        and not even
        slow down
          much less
          check for survivors

maybe
  if i leave it
  and don’t have it mended
    then
    the next time
      won’t be
      as traumatic

  because there will be
      a next time

    there is always
        a next time
