Amongst the Wet Leaves

A foggy night, freezing and sleepless.
I stand outside with my cigarette.

My only friend, it lives.
It is consumed and dies
Amongst the wet leaves.

Freezing, sleepless, I live.
I am consumed and die
Amongst the wet leaves.

I lie outside with my cigarette.
On a foggy night, freezing, I sleep.


Please don’t let loneliness and despair consume you.
Reach out to someone, talk. Seek companionship.
There is someone for you.

“It is not good for the man to be by himself;
I will make him a helper as his counterpart” (Gen. 2:18)
