Here we are in a place I never thought we’d be. Maybe I knew, I don’t know. This is the life of the drug culture, and through it all, the only addictions I’ve seemed to maintain are caffeine, nicotine, and THC. Not bad, considering the position of everyone else I used to call my friends. Pills are the new heroin and they’ve taken a toll on my social life. I’ve been out of the loop, but a face from the recent past filled me in on all the latest. After hearing about all the soap opera stuff I’ve missed, I’m sorry I even asked.

Abortions, overdoses, addictions, lies, deceit – nothing has changed. I have the mind to call, but what would be the point. They are in a place that can’t be penetrated, and I can’t put my life on hold for friends who don’t even realize my absence from the scene. So, this is where we are and nobody’s dream came true.
