When you became me, poem, steven james humphreys
Life's ups and downs

When you became me

once you became me

you were you again

you should have stayed you

all along

and saved all

the gray vanity

for another rainy day

but,

if I could go back

I would do it again

the same way

with more fervor

and drink like

we used to

but, you can’t go back

God won’t let you

for

once you’ve moved

all your stuff out

and changed

your age

you no longer

have an

address

to

sit,

drink

and

think

alone.
