Heroin

With so few words you cried out louder,

I swear you’d never spoken clearer,

To read your eyes last time I saw you.

I stared into a softly fading flame.

 

I never knew you all that well, my friend,

Though you were always around,

With one finger on the trigger,

One foot on the ground.

 

I was glad to find you fighting,

Though you believed,

There was so little left to save,

In that same moment death came smiling.

 

-You threw it all,

For heroin.
