The smoked cleared
And the ambulances still sailed.
A ghost drew near.
If not, why was she so pale?
Conversations carried us through the night
Which teased her potential second death.
Distance fended off immediate feelings of plight
Although I smelt it lingering on my breath.
She left me speechless
But paramedics never came.
They never came for me
And my world was never the same.
If I put my shoes to use
Then maybe I could’ve saved our souls.
My heart, yearning for abuse,
Ate through my $100 soles.
