Dusty and weathered, a faint picture of you rests on our mantle
your drunken smile, smeared across your face reimbursing your fate
I wish I could feel you whisper your conscripting lyrics in my ear so I can remember the feeling of your warm, beer scented breath roll down my neck once more
sloppy movements, distant and brushed away from years of neglect
I feared losing you
you brought out a side of me that I thought I’d packed away with the rest of my old thing.
so many long sought nights we walked crooked along the street anticipating the electricity when you kissed me good night
long lost memories,so indescribable.
so many nights I feel victim to your binding enrapture
soon, i would become orderly to your alphabet
descending upon me your scored knowledge and theories
your words i value deeply
what is left of you
and until we are reunited at the gates,
i will hold you on my a golden pedestal
my hero, Jake
