So it seems I’ve lost my mind again,
can’t remember where I put it.
Back in another ward again,
this time a lot more to it.
I lost a friend of mine this week,
from whom I’d drifted apart.
Got the message on my news feed,
it was a shock right to the heart.
It made me really doubt myself,
thoughts of where my life was heading.
I felt like I’m only living on a shelf,
Suit worn only once for a beautiful wedding.
My friend, you see, was far to young,
a tragedy, a mess,
But on the day his bell was rung,
the devil knew his address.
But this story does not end,
with darkness, damp and death.
I want to smile like my friend,
as he smiled his final breath.
