Sticky Tape

It happens again
As I helplessly watch
The friendship I’ve built
Held together with scotch
Tape as it falls
The last memory fades
A memory I
wanted to last for decades
And I cry out in pain
As the limb is severed
A pain that I know
Will be intricately remembered
As I hope I can last
To the end of the day
I realize that I
Have nothing more to say
And I sit in my bed
As my eyes slowly close
And I know that someday
When we are ghosts
I will look back to you
