Shared food, we

Smiled too, we

Sang tunes, we

Drank too


We were gay, we

Decayed, we

Snot caine, we

Left jail


We stayed high, we

Weren’t shy, we

Shared car, we

Crashed by


We lost parts, we

Wore black, we

Dropped down, we

Caused cries




Fleet footed cloud

Once here not here

Mirage i see across the desert

Drops shiny dew on dried up leaves

A little to raise me up high

Or smash me down below.

…… Hope;

That keeps my feet trudging on

That fuels my burnt out muscles

That strengthens my parched throat

For a last desperate leap

To my timely salvation

Or my ultimate death.
