IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME


It could have been me

Because I was like you

I was good

But I was bad too

 

I loved her when I cheated

I loved her even after I stopped

I loved her when I got caught

I loved her more when I saw her hurt

 

It could have been me

Because I was like you

I knew it was bad when I sniffed the stuff

But oh! It felt so good

I was fun

You were fun

Life wasn’t so tragic

And nothing was too big to fix

I understand

Because it could have been me

I was just like you

I was young

And happy

But sad at the same time

I couldn’t understand all of me

Why I felt empty at times

Why I was lonely

Though surrounded by many

 

I was just like you

People came to me for a feel good

We laughed

We were merry

I was happy to make them happy

Because it eluded me

 

It could have been me

I found solace in all the wrong places

But like you

I was snatched

You by death

I by Christ

Both of us

Pulled out

 

It could have been me

It was me

Both of us died

Me to me

You to the world!
