Dust before Dawn - Part 2

She pulled on the car door
Her muscles ached and burned
The exhaust filled her lungs - nothing

She searched the gravel road
Her fingers wrapped around a heavy stone
Shattered glass - even the sound of it stings

He pushed through the thicket
His pupils grew in the milky lights
The glass dug into his heels - red snow

He reached through the broken window
His hands found the keys
The engine died - silence

She wailed
"He's killing me"
Her voice bounced off the trees

He hissed
"You killed him"
His words bled from his lips
