My Inventory

She died of an overdose
Heroin, like spiderwebs
Separating millions of core-nerves

From reality-living neutral
Until coals revive blanc

Sorrows, child left behind
Awaiting distress

I found her flower etched
Jeans, in my office

I threw them into the trash
Her beauty crushed

What could have become?
 
What could have

                                     Become?

    A sad reality, if only they realised the impact their addiction has on the ones left behind.. So many can relate to this Jimbo... Hope the week ahead will be a good one ;-) tc Wilma
