Do You Know?

Do you know what it’s like
To be so broken and numb
that you don’t feel fear
when in danger?
When the guns come out
you feel calm
When the car spins round and round
you relax
when you fall through the air
you feel peace…?

Do you know?

Do you know what it’s like
the morning after?
After you had that sex
(it wasn’t your spouse)
After you watched that porn
(or made it)
After you drank that bottle
(wasn’t it good?)
After you did that blow
(oh, the high)
After that beating
(that you gave or received)
After that fight
(that didn’t end so well)
After you sold a piece
of yourself
(did you really think it was worth it?)
for rot…?

Do you know?

Do you know what it’s like
to lose the thing
you treasured above all else?
Was it your faith?
Was it your woman?
Was it your man?
Was it your child?
Was it your money?
Was it your job?
Was it your friend?
Was it what you expected?
Did you know how much
you loved and needed
before you lost…?

Do you know?
