Feels

Once, long ago,

I had a family,

the other children and I,

and that felt good.

But nothing is forever,

at least not that.

 

Then, for far too long,

i had the drugs,

the other children and i,

and that felt good.

But nothing is forever,

at least not that.

 

After that, for a brief instant,

I had a lover,

like children, we loved,

and that felt good.

But nothing is forever,

at least not that.

 

Now, I have a moment,

I take in a deep breath,

childlike,

and that feels good,

but nothing is forever,

in fact,

nothing is the only thing

that is forever.
