Reflections

What did we do, for life
got complicated all of a sudden.
Breathless words took on a new meaning
whispers died young
and smiles rotted with the butterflies.
The road lengthened into a small destiny
too far for my swollen feet
I wanted a dream that came true
and I did not want its brown color
I take my solace in bitter coffee and you,
you only drink morning dew
with zero calories.
We are grown up.
finished products with an expiration date
Best before instead of best after,
and best during.
Old habits die hard they say
but they never say what happens after
as habits walk around undead
chewing a bit of heart
just for the heck of it
and making me wonder
what did we do,
to live in such interesting times.
