Overdose

You died

I tried so hard to save you but
You died all the same

A stranger
I haven’t thought of you in years

In bed they found you
Trapped in narcotic bliss

Your heart gave out in the ambulance
They brought you in to me

Cold, so cold, I had to
Warm you for one final chance

I invaded your body
With more needles and tubes

Filled you with heat
And life giving force

After I shocked you
Heart beating again

Your uncertain future
A dread weight on me

And when again your blood ceased to flow
I did nothing and let you go

Spoke to your family with soothing words
And told them

You died

I tried so hard to save you but
You died all the same
