It is horrible to wake in the morn
Your mind fried and heart torn
A cup of hot chocolate in hand
Patiently waiting where you usually stand
The bell resounds
And my head starts to pound
Salty tears run down my face
Immediately feeling out of place
I'm forced to accept
This horrible concept
There's no more morning scares
Always catching you unaware
Instead sitting alone
Hopelessly checking my phone
There's no more lunch tunes
That should have made all the girls swoon
Instead dreadful silence
Seeking some guidance
There's no more talk of adventure
Developing a picture
Instead standing still
An imagination to kill
Nothing is the same
An idea we must tame
While it has broken my heart
From the very start
There is something to do
Rather than kick off our shoe
We must keep him alive
Until our own time arrives
We do this with words
Accompanied by singing birds
We tell his story
With no need to worry
Not the tale of the end
Of how we lost a dear friend
Of when the pain became too much
Everything sensitive to the touch
How without a single flinch
He somehow turned to the lynch
This is not the tale we tell
And if you do, go straight to hell
We speak of a boy
Whose dark eyes sought joy
And when he could not find his own
He kept his cheerful tone
He cared deeply for his friends
To them he would tend
Adventure was in his heart
Setting itself free in Rockville's Park
Music was a passion
In addition to Whovian fashion
He will live through tales of love
As he rests high above
Strumming away in the clouds
And I will always be proud
Of the young boy to be known
For all the good he has shown
Just as he had begun
His name is Alex Carlson.
This is something I wrote in early December when one of my closest friends passed away.

I haven't posted on here in quite a while so I figured I could begin putting my little scribbles and writings here as I've stopped drawing almost entirely.

Unsure whether to say you're welcome or apologize. Heheh
Thank you.
