A evening spent with a close friend battling a drug addiction drew these words from me.

you are wild and broken

and surround yourself with this pagan thing

makes me squirm

I see the needle

bleeding

sanity like smoke

it cuts

sacred blind deep

the ferocious question descends

what god would ask this thing

it devours you

you wear the torment like brine

but I am liquid

and cannot move you

only watch you

twisting

unable to rise
