Deep In 25 - Poem by Robert Burgan

I'd crush you up like ultramarine and snort you off the chest of the sea
But why in the world would someone like you get invested in me?
The waves of the ocean shift whenever you swim beneath
But why in the world would someone like you get invested in me?

I can live without you
But I really don't want to
I'm so deep in 25
No more purpose left to find
Give it my all for one last time
A real good time to say goodbye.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I'd like to dedicate this piece to my friend EJ, I wrote it months ago and after I heard about his passing last week I realized how much it was about him, how much him and I shared the exact same pain. He was a compassionate soul in a world of slicing wind. I never met somebody who loved animals as much as I did and never killed bugs. I will always remember the conversations him and I had and I will never forget his pain, its a sad reality. Love you buddy.
