Five Questions (For A Friend)

March 30, 2011 • Poetry & Short Fiction • Views: 1077

Chasing the dragon… into the dark
Stealing your soul ~ Torching your heart

WHO are you now?

She’s loving you right ~ Temptress of the night
Screaming in your veins… in your head… in your brain

WHAT’S your shame?

Break our hearts… for your cold, bleak, hell
Always the same ~ She never suited you well

WHERE are YOU now?

Lost ~ Lost ~ Lost

Crumbling life… draining to gray
Deep in the valley of the shadow ~ Let us pray

WHEN are you coming home?

Poison, you breathe her in… your all-consuming sin
Love, Hate, Love ~ Your old lady: Heroin

WHY did you let her in again?
