junkie no. 1

the reaper cometh
for me and all the other
little junkie boys
still going to bed with nightlights
and lullabies
watching monstrous shadows
dance across the wall
eyes closed, prayers said
rolling in the cold
lonely of the night
hoping against all odds
for a storybook ending
don't forget, when you leave
please turn out the light
