You’re like an ice cube

 

Slipping, drifting down the road

 

Dissolving before they can find you.

 

Life goes on brother

 

Remember you didn’t have to-

 

You didn’t have to leave.

 

Déjà vu;

 

Song plays behind you,

 

Street lights reveal your figure.

 

Forgot what it was to be human

 

A permanent freak of nature

 

Send back a letter if it haunts you

 

I want to hear back, understand?

 

Love is far off

 

When you’re out of tune

 

And sad.

 

When you’re scorned,

 

Burned,

 

Hanging loose

 

And you think nobody loves you-

 

Love is cruel then,

 

It’s desperate and crude.

 

People left with nothing

 

Please drop the hang noose.

 

Laying in a bathtub

 

Are you?

 

Lying in blood juice

 

Sinking on cue

 

With nothing above or below you?

 

Nothing for, with or necessarily against you?

 

Love and hate both gave,

 

Took,

 

And slayed.

 

You were neutral,

 

In the middle,

 

Neither here nor there.

 

Still,

 

A drifter,

 

Rolling with the thunder

 

And under

 

The clouds

 

You stoop,

 

You drift,

 

You fade…

 

But I still love you brother.

 

In my dream,

 

You come back today

 

But in nightmares

 

Still,

 

You drift further and further away
