Rookie (28 september 1991 / Antwerp - Belgium)


Note: In this poem, when I used 'Mary Jane' and 'Marijuana' i am talking about a person who leaves a happy effect on me (just the way drugs leave happy effects on us) therefore, instead of using that person's name, i compared them to Marijuana and Mary Jane.

October, the month right after my day
I sit on the porch and wait for the rain
Just like any other day
I gaze at the sky, the clouds, and the grey
Sad lonely thing, you may say
With eyes filled with water
Filled with great dismay
Imagining my friend
Handing me an umbrella
In the 'rainbow' time of the day

Mary Jane, Mary Jane
Where have you been?
Mary Jane, Mary Jane
Only an illusion
Always in my brain

Sweet October
Sweet decay
1991 till 2008
Living thing
Bleeding out the hate

Mary Jane
Oh won't you cuddle me tonight?
Fly me out of my plight
This drowsy October
Paid me a visit
So I stayed awake last night

October, October
Oh why show up so suddenly?
October, November, December
Now, in the middle of January

Sleepless for sure
Sleepless, don't need a cure

Another shadow
I seek my cocaine
My drug
My Mary Jane

My sweet sixteen passed
Right before October
Right before doomsday
What a cloudy day!

I got your message
Wanted to say
Sweet sixteen ain't so sweet
When you can't come out and play

Mary Jane, Mary Jane
I've missed you
Missed our little game
Under the rain
I hummed the tunes we sang to each other
Beer in one hand
I would drag myself through the laziness of October

Heroin wouldn't do
When I hurt
Looking at the traces of your dew
Wasn't addicted to the pain
Nor the cocaine
And no possible pill
Could make me chill

Until I saw my great ol' friend
Reached out for its hand
Marijuana, Marijuana
You've got me jumping up and down
October finally lost, couldn't beat your aroma
Couldn't win your crown…
