.I Saw You: The Lost Ones

I was woken up around 4am by the screams of “Fire!” I jumped out of bed, grabbed my dog and guitar, and bolted outside. Blazing flames were bursting out of my next door neighbor’s second-story apartment. Sirens were approaching and that’s when I saw you—arms waving and screaming for help. RIP, neighbors. I wish I could have helped you. That image will forever be etched in my memory.
