Awakening

The sun has risen and my cocaine dreams are over.

Nightlife has finally taken its toll on me; I was not meant to be nocturnal.

Waking up, frightened in a room I do not recognize, I look around for you, only to find a stranger laying beside me.

Heartache strikes and I realize the nightmares that haunted me were real. My eyes are filled with tears and my mouth is dry. I drink the drops of guilt and sadness that fall down my face.

Consumed by shame, I sit and mourn the loss of a friend and prepare myself for the changes to come. The night has passed but it has left behind a veil of darkness around us. I only hope for you to see me in the same light again.
