when did you become

such a bitter old man?

was it done with mirrors?

or slight of hand?

were you betrayed

by love and life?

cut to the core

by demon knife?

lost and drifting

all alone

jaded gypsy

no way home

isolation self-imposed

and frozen...

you speak in tongues

and curse the devil

but you were once

the righteous rebel

and that's what hurts

is to watch you fade away....
