Hey Oblivion - Poem by Bryan Riley

Hey, tranquility-
I haven't seen you
around here
for awhile

Hey conformity-
I have to admit it's
really good to
see you smile

Hey there, unity-
I have to think
another drink would
make me love you more

Hey, ignominy-
I guess you know I
have to show you how to
even up the score

Hey there, suicide-
Just like the last, we're
just like ghosts from the past-
just twisting in the wind

Hey, transparency-
I didn't see you come in-
I've been busy out
looking for a friend

Hello, addiction-
come closer- let me feel you
sliding sweetly through my
veins and into my brain

-Hey, oblivion...
