It was late on the bus home

I was ready to move abroad

There she was

I'm not one to look

I'm not one to judge

I'm just one to see

Was she in a trance?

Was she in a haze?

She radiated careless

She radiated harmless

She radiated joyful

She screamed for help

I watched the news

I saw her dead

She seemed at peace

Lying still

Lying cold

She seemed distraught

Caught in a loop

Stillness motion

Of love and hurt

Of care and cries

Lost on the way

She never dared to say

I'm dying inside

Help me or I'll try

I'm hurting inside

Save me or I'll cry

I got off bus 205

That's when I bumped into her

There I stood

Not a glance in sight

Not a word in mind

She turned and smiled

Was I in a haste?

Was I such a waste?

I gave her the cold shoulder

I just passed her by

My eyes said fuck you

I cried in pain

I watched the news

I saw her dead

She seemed at peace

Lying still

Lying cold

She seemed distraught

Caught in a loop

Stillness motion

Of love and hurt

Of care and cries

Lost on the way

She never dared to say

I'm dying inside

Help me or I'll try

I'm hurting inside

Save me or I'll cry

I ran home, burst into tears

But as I fell down the stairs

I felt nothing

My heart was empty

My soul was dying

No help came for me

Too tired to care

Too wired to fight

Empathy craves company

But death had called me

Didn't make a sound

Didn't breathe a word

I watched the news

I saw her dead

She seemed at peace

Lying still

Lying cold

She seemed distraught

Caught in a loop

Stillness motion

Of love and hurt

Of care and cries

Lost on the way

She never dared to say

I'm dying inside

Help me or I'll try

I'm hurting inside

Save me or I'll cry

In the end, we both shall die

Addict or not, I chose to end
