A song about the deadly White Horse....


 

Edgar said “I’m lonely”
Brandy said “me too”
“I think I’ve lost my vision”
“And I don’t know what to do”
 
Life on coffee
Cigarettes
Bleary mornings
No regrets
 
Dopamine shuffle
Liquor slurred
Fried synapse
Wounded bird
 
His missing rib
Such brittle wings
Her sultry smile
Gold nose ring
 
He needed her
Just wanted her to know
The chance slipped through his fingers
Sleepless nights ago
 
“He’s the only one for me”
Precedes her painful pause
Searching for forever
Overlook the flaws
 
Glazed disposition
Crown of matted hair
Tender soul a rotting
Dazed
Stark despair
 
Mean streets
Dark
So fucking cold
Minutes seem like hours
Teenage eyes grow old
 
Jungle steeped in evil
Consciousness evades
“Survival but a choice”
Says the Queen of Spades
 
Thirst to feel
Not merely see
No time left for sad goodbyes
He wandered aimlessly
 
Reckless Altar Boy
Lacerated prey
White Horse overdose
He tried too hard that day

Nice to see you back! Excellent writing and fully expressed, a cement jungle filled with traps and only the wise shall overcome....

Be always safe,
Karen

I may have missed some of the nuance, Bill, but I
really like your poem and the rhythm in the way you
write: The chance slipped through his fingers
Sleepless nights ago.
