And Then There Was One


i miss my old friend. the one i used to kick cans with to kill the time we hated. and not much arose from the situation. maybe cause we never jumped the gun with the legs we didn't have. the only two people i ever met that didn't have a clear escape. you and i buckled as they planned the getaway.

then the water level rose and when i tried to look for you it was pointless. you were so far under. so deep into it. the water swept you out to sea right as the day changed and ground crumbled beneath me.

i went back months later and saw this scene that horrified the lies about life right out of me. i saw you, head above water. my visit turned into a stay and after some careful consideration i decided misery loves life and it forges to fashion the path you take in the end.

\ all the things foregone are still aching on my mind.

  8. Depressing. Paints the picture of many people's lives. The ones that never escape their small town, never take risks, never run off to vegas, get drunk, get married to a midget hooker, have 2 kids over 6ft tall, etc.

  9. Wow. Not sure how to interpret that. So many friends and memories from the past came to mid and then it seemed so PRESENT I din't know how to feel or what to think.
    I don't want for it to be forgone! Or ache or pain!
