Old Friends

I see a darkness
Hiding in the light
Taking a sip of my coffee
And a drag of my cigarette
I give it a nonchalant nod
Just so it doesn't 
Feel alone

My mind tends to slip 
Between fantasy and reality
Yet the darkness is always there
Sometimes seeming surprised 
To see me

We're old friends you see
Even roommates for a while
Those were the days
Lost but never alone
