that same sparkle anymore
beautiful brown eyes filled with pain
doctors say that nothing's wrong
his mother knows her son
waiting for him nights on end to come home
only to find "him" sitting at the bus stop
clothes dirty, hair unkempt
waiting on a bus that will never come
unexplainable moments of rage
in a matter of seconds
replaced by the man we all know and love
it's scary to watch the downward spiral
a genius, afflicted by his own mind
torment that no one should bare
has become his burden.
For my friend, who's entering a chapter in his life that no one saw coming.
