"If you want to hang with the big dogs, you gotta learn how to pee in the tall grass"

I could feel the tears streaming
as i held him and he cried.
While he apologized and begged,
pleaded for retribution and forgiveness
from the one who found him.

Sirens were a distant wail
as our chests heaved, and shuddered with sobs.
He never knew.
Gave up so much, so fast.
So much time was lost, leaving, left.

The blood flowing so freely from his wrists
would never stop.
Never stopped.
We cried together, apologized for so much.
I held him as he lay dying.

We both knew he was so close..
He was... so tired, he told me
I begged him to stay awake
To stay with me; sputtered and screamed
made no difference.

At the end i forgave him.
Only at the end; when the ambulance arrived
and i was wrenched from th lifeless body
of a lost friend. And I... An empty husk.
I was late
