# 405

Posted to Poetry

You looked so fragile lying there
eyes half closed, as if in a prayer
I watched your silence, felt your pain
outside # 405 it started to rain
close the black curtains
to shut out the light
I bang some more dope
and things seem allright
I lay down beside you, let my eyes close
anxiety drains from my head to my toes
I thought as I look at your face
how much life are we willing to waste?
I lay in silence and feel no pain
outside #405 it continues to rain
