Survival Celebration

I was held in your world that night absurdity reigned and I had nowhere to run no way out stuck only with the fear the love the aching round my heart faced with strangers a laughing girl child who made it plain she knew you better than I it was torture watching your descent into madness the realization that you were lost to me the cruelty of the gang sickened me and I was the friend you couldn’t be helping him through his horror trip he marveled that I didn’t fear pitiful, he begged me to stay with him crosslegged on the floor I talked and talked through the paranoia, the pain the demons and fear as he watched the holy pictures move until the sun rose in the light of dawn he found himself again filled with joy that the journey was at an end we made it through the night but I was cold cold and weary we saw the day in from on top of the world the sun so bright and you were there too in all of your glory understanding dawned in the brilliance of your survival celebration this half doped dazed death life that you choose
