RIP 2012

the hopeless days
the endless nights
the shocks the betrayals
the flights the frights

the tears that washed this city’s streets
the helplessness that couldn’t cure her aching grief
the words that should never have been said
the anger abundant, the love being brief

the story of me, coming nearly to an end
the fact that you made me crawl, whimper and bend
the heart still couldn’t hate you
the enemy bearing gifts, the teacher godsend

the truth that you were stronger, numerous
the battles you won, scarring me for life (but)
the war, dear friend, i’ve won
the night you lay dying, is the day i survive
