To Derek  
i'm in your cold weather stare
i'm in your head upstairs
i'm in your fallen soldier recline
i'm in your shooting star demise

i see you
weathering it
under the table
i see you
marred and scarred
and barely able
i see your lips
as crossed as
the line inbetween
conscience and lier
a suicide unseen

limosines and green
may be coming your way
but i see hooters
in the distance
screeching warnings
far away

you see, you see
you're me
you've been coastin'
empty boastin'
ain't gasoline enough to live

you'll see, you'll see
you're me
if the storm
doesn't get you
then the loneliness will

let's go to Long Beach
where we can bide our time
and we can buy
the company we seek
in the form of hefty crime

we can play the stakes of life
upon those city lines
we can make mistakes
and utter reminisces
from a better time

we're drivin'--hikin'--to LB
amidst these modern times
we can hit the streets
and sing;
some quarters for our rhymes

and we can make believe
that institutions got us down
and push those worries
clear under the ground
(instead of swim, we're gonna drown)

We're goin' to Long Beach

you have so much pain still about derek. i don't know what to think about that. that must be hard to deal with.
you flubbed the punch line!numbersss on March 23rd, 2008 04:51 am (UTC)
he just confided in me a lot of personal things. He was so exasperated by people, didn't trust anyone. except me. and i really just...fucked him over. just like everybody else.
but i don't have too much pain about it anymore. the poem's more a throw back to the feelings i had then.
