Dependency

Written by: Justin C. Morgan

Before – when you were here,
I complained.  Thoughtlessly.
I had no complaints – I was miserable.
Brushing the depths to see your reflection,
I have no interest.
My reflection is on the surface, I see no smile –
A drug?  To make you see yourself –
They call it what?
Say it –
Before – when you were here,
Love fell around in mud caused by tears,
Not mine, though, yours, my creation I suppose.
Your drug tells you of life – and you grow?
Now you’re strong?  Now you see yourself in the reflection,
Unfortunately I’m gone.
I have no interest –
I’m the damned one.  I saw another point of view.
Before – when you were here,
I complained.  Thoughtlessly.
