In The Hospital


As she felt out of control,

Her redesigned brown eyes blink, 

Into his brave hands, Amie keeps vibrating.
Little did he understands about sudden heart attacks. 
The ambulance rushed her to the hospital,
Breathing hopeless and more confused towards the dilemma.
The situation was emanating even more dangerous, nobody was safe. 
Into the palace among the soldiers,
It was greatly debated that who could poison the princess of the village. 
But the checkpoint was tightly controlled. 
The ambulance arrived to have found a few doctors on the ream of packing,
Other nurses were preparing to take over.
While electricity was officially a problem.
The panic on their faces surface, 
He continues to ask for them to save his wife to be. He knew that his powers are upon the survival of Amie. 
He gasps for air while holding his head.
He continues to question himself, ‘dad is in prison, my brother is been banished from the village and my mother is nowhere to be found, who could have done this to my beloved Amie? Who fought greatly for this victory’ Karim said.
The confusing moments in the palace forced all the soldiers to start fearing each other. And some have been arrested with other diner organizers for interrogation.
Karim sat in the hospital and his beloved wife was struggling for her life, she couldn’t speak either open her eyes. 
Inside the emergency unit, she was admitted and at some point, they use the defibrillator to send an electric shock to the heart to restore its normal rhythm. 
One of the youngest kings fearless of his life, walking down to the cell, hell open to face his father. ‘Who has been greatly accusing of the crimes? , he asks the question. Karim bangs at the cell door, slap his father, and further comprising his throat. He began to lay gist of swollen eggs, his eyes froze out of frustration, he laugh harder and replied, ‘ didn’t you ask about your mother during her pregnancy months, how she was begging for her life before I notice your existence when I could have just finished you, and I believe you were a big mistake’. 
Karim slapped his father from behind,
The volume of his anger accelerated,
He took a full gear to make his facet limbs, kicking and knocked following blows. 
‘ Dad, we were lunging, we tumble but never lose faith, as the palace burns down to the ground, then you will understand why my mother begged for her life, I have done my part by saving my nation, clearing your drunken men and band your bad government, it has always been my belief and that I will triumph. 
I am preparing head to head as you wish,
But if my beloved wife to take her last breathe before sunrise, the sun would set with you into your grave seven feet deep. 
It’s not my tongue that has spilled the words but my heart. Make sure you leave withstand to narrate the scenes to your grandchildren. My Amie is fighting for her life, breathless you shall become as the night passes and your flesh we shall serve to the dogs’, Karim slammed the prison door. He went back to the hospital to check on his princess. 
While he met her eyes still close, 
holds her hands so rigid,
‘My Amie, queen of prose,
To Dear love, I strive,
Not to make us weaker,
Your memories I serve, 
Sneeze to make me stronger,
Your eyes are tightly close I heard,
But my love shall never asunder.
When your love whispers, 
I believe that it’s not trauma,
Wake up thee love, wake up dielectric,
As his eyes run down with tears.
Karim was truly in love.
