Three words

three words are tiny pebbles tossed into the light of a moon on crooked water. I cannot say your name now without remembering black smoke like lead in your veins. They tell me you found God all I see are phantoms.

SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND
So, I've been listening to this every morning when I wake up
and every evening at sunset.
At first, as soon as I heard the first four notes, 
I would put my head down on my desk
and sob and sob and sob
but now, I am finding some joy in it.
The music is helping me to remember happy times.
Music is like that.

the drugs do not define her her life defines her
i will always have a hole in my heart  where she once was 
How much tragedy has to happen before we split wide open?
