Lifeless And Vacant

I remember your arms

you carved them with a piece of glass

all the others had gone to bed

you kept me up all night

My mind reeling from pills

yours from being heard for the first time

asking me to join you for a cigarette

they wouldn’t let me leave the floor

We laughed at the lunatics

playing games and jigsaw puzzles

your eyes met mine with a grin

hiding a puzzle piece in your hand

Thinking to myself

of being with you

ignoring who we were

where we were

Hearing you scream in the middle of the night

the nurses rushed into your room

staring out my window

wondering if you were gone

Sitting with you at breakfast

I was excited until I noticed

your food untouched

your eyes lifeless and vacant
