Overdose Mosaic

had a dream
found an ex-girlfriend
dead in a bathroom stall
dirty needle in her arm

looked up her name
just out of curiosity
first result
her obituary

the surprise drove me
to do a little digging
turned out
it was an overdose

still can’t shake
these fucking goosebumps

maybe she was thinking of me
when she died alone
and somehow her spirit
found its way into my dream

maybe
she wanted to apologise
for leaving broken glass
in my boots

or maybe
that crazy bitch
just wanted to hurt me
one last time
