it’s way

she smiled up at me
it was obvious
she had been beautiful
before life
had it’s way with her.

the small little scabs
ran down her arms
ghosts hid
inside of her eyes
as well as a hunger
that seemed
to drive her.

she asked me
for some change
overly eager
slightly desperate

i frowned
offered a meal instead
to put into her stomach
instead of a vein

she thanked me
with words of dismissal
moving on
to the next would be target
for the next
hopeful fix

she was pretty
the shadow of the beauty
she once was
before life
as it is known to do
had it’s way with her

One thought on “it’s way
