we danced
on trains and in parks
in the kitchen while we painted
everything pink

we tripped
through city streets
and dark alleys
seeking out music and walking white lines
with the vampires

screamed at the mice
and the men
and stared stony and angry at death
as it stole our friends

we drifted
separated by miles
and emotions
yet tethered by the memories
and promises of another adventure

but you’ve gone and left
off on an adventure
dancing along a path that i will someday follow

til then…
