    ...she's gone......

    .....thrown from a rooftop.

    another
    broken body
    becoming proof
    us humans CAN'T
    flap our arms
    and fly
    even when
    high on the
    "best" crack
    in fact
    cocaine
    MAYBE
    only
    dulled the pain
    on impact....

    ...I wonder...
    did she have time ?
    to see
    IT
    coming ?
    I mean...
    did "the fiend"
    IN HER
    abandon ship and
    leave her to face
    sudden death
    alone ?
    ...as
    impending doom
    was CERTAIN
    in the seconds it took
    from roof
    to
    pavement...
    were those moments
    filled with
    regret and
    thoughts of
    her enslavement
    to that
    HIGH
    cost of living dead
    ...dread filled ritual
    full of scraps
    and residual
    pipe hits
    bartering her
    physical
    intensively critical
    mental
    a far gone conclusion
    now considered a casualty
    in her war
    to
    fill the
    NEED
    in the end
    only
    fulfilling
    the
    dopeman's
    GREED.

    ...KNOWING
    the
    dopeman
    aint gonna
    feed
    her seeds
    when she's
    gone...
    did
    realization
    FINALLY
    dawn ?
    that-
    -she was leaving them
    ALONE
    to be trained
    by the
    Soldiers of Cocaine
    to perpetuate pain
    main aim
    to maim
    FOR GAIN
    and aim
    needles and
    pipes
    at swollen arms
    and lost lips
    at night....
    did she SCREAM as she fell ?
    did she fight...?

    YES !
    her body
    took flight
    from a height that
    insured her
    passing....

    NOW we
    stand around
    asking
    HOW ???

    HOW DID IT
    HAPPEN ???

    well....

    there's a rule
    I USE..
    I suppose

    it's true....

    YOU DON'T USE DRUGS....


    DRUGS USE...




    YOU .





    REST IN PEACE MICHELLE.

    WE LOVE YOU.







    On A Continuous Journey
