The city knew something was burning in her and she burned too.
The highway, clotted with persons rushing home from work quick to spoil themselves in a two-second blink weekend.
Her mind echoed with idiosyncrasies.
There was no such thing as normal ;She tried to listen very hard I must add ,she tried to be interested.
She readjusted her rear view mirror and the vision on it tugged along the memories and thoughts she’d spent years escaping.
A certain sadness clouds her gaze one that her children mistake for elderly wisdom.
There’s a certain aura in the first puff,
When the indica brings out the Indiana Jones,
And her lust for adventure sojourns through streams of Socrates and Plato
All in an attempt to exorcize your imprint on her own life -to consider the intoxicating thrill of your wildness and the constant worry of it she could have done to alter the trajectory.
You caught within the pages whilst she was beyond the book.
Wasn’t that the ultimate achievement? Your endorphins rocked high to psychedelic utopia/ euphoria with each puff,
your ego by potent sense of regret as we chased the night with H&h -HBO and hash.
There are times when she tries to guess what her role ever was.
On such days she creates this saint out of you when you could be the grim reaper.
Your superpower was discovering what triggered self loath in someone and throwing it back in their face.
When the jury in her head sentences you, the theory of her imagining you slams into her mind.
Who lives, who dies , who gets to tell your story? Hamilton
From dust you came and to it you return, you were never a phoenix to start with.
