    A long leap to the water
    and my sad life would be done,
    but winter waters are cold and dark
    and I didn't want to be uncomfortable;
    so, I got drunk instead
    hoping that tomorrow would discover
    the character and courage I misplaced years ago,
    when I was living and not just taking up space.
    Guns are hard and heavy.
    This Armani didn't come cheap
    and even Phil's dry cleaning couldn't clean
    away my cowardice and constant fear.
    I think I'll have another drink,
    maybe swallow some reds and blues,
    all blues, with Miles, Mingus
    and just fade into another track
    leaving my suitcase by the door
    in case I decide to go again.

    Bad day!

    I got past it, but some times I get caught up in what people do to other people and it seemslike I can't do a **** thing to make a difference--just feeling a little sorry for myself--thanks for bearing with me--Ra

    bringing a bottle that we can share
    after hiding your suitcase under the stairs
    we will share this moment together
    you and i through the stormy weather
    waiting for the sun to peek out again
    lean on me ... i'm your friend

    :heart:
