A fickle muse tickles yet again

Been talking with a dear friend tonight. The following poems flowed out.

 

There is some language below, you've been warned.

Life...
Sometimes you are a passenger
Looking through a window,
Trying to make sense of the world outside

Life...
Just a bloody passenger
Someone else in the driver's seat
Charting a course you just follow

Life...
Fuck being a passenger
Don't you want to drive from time to time?

Life...
So now you're driving.
Oh, I pity you...

Hello dear old friend.
Just you and me tonight.
Seems to be an ongoing trend.
Together, we pass the night.

Nothing around the bend.
Is this our plight?
Nothing to really mend.
Should that give me a fright?
Are you even a friend?
Not quite...

Tomorrow is a long way away...
Three, four maybe even five...
How many do you need?
How many to pass the...
night?

Come the morrow,
Count the cost?

Survival?
Lies?

And then again.
Three, four...five
Or even six?

The daily toll,
Tick tock...
Tick

Tock...

Lies...
Lies,
LIES!

Comfortable...bloody...fucking...LIES!
Yes...
Yes...
Just one more?

There is a hunger
You want it

No....no...
You need...IT

Some call it addic-
Shhh! That's a nasty word.

It's nothing bad.
Just something to help...
Help you get through...
Each and every...day?

But...

But...

You doubt, you fear?
But it's always...there

Silence your fears.
Silence...
Silence...
Blessed...silence...

You need it.
That is enough.
More than enough.
Way more...

I have a friend.

Let me repeat that. I. Have. A. Friend.

Despite everything.

Someone who is there.
Who believes.
More than I do.
No...that is wrong.

I don't believe.
He does.

It is enough.
It has to be.

I...have a friend.
