I did a bio and you would be proud; I even spoke of you.
I tried to join you the other day and shot the needle too.
A Seminole with no control, still no one can compare.
Your dark black hair and deep green eyes made every groupie stare.
You led the way much like John; Yes, I still listen to the "Who."
Things have changed quite a bit, but bands still rock, though few..
There is a band called Evanescence, they are a cross between,
a Celtic orchestra and metal like we thought we'd be.
I remember when we got high you would always say.
"If I die before you do, promise me you'll always play".
I tried my love, but I was hooked and had to take some time.
I ended up in rehab, for I found poppy so sublime.
I met someone the other day who I talked with for a while.
He reminded me of you at first, but lacked your class and style.
I did not see him in a way where romance comes to mind.
I was caught up in your memory, but he was so unkind.
I am writing poetry right now; I'm censored and that blows.
I know what you would say to that, "Whatever, if it flows!"
Believe me I have pushed the limit here in many ways.
I am still a rebel, darlin; I just keep it in these days.
