The ink is still wet.

The ink is still wet.

A Poem by robert harris jr

The pain of trying to hide my ugly world from people, being abused by everybody because of my looks, even today I'm treated the same, my family even, drug abuse the grip of Heroin!

I'm fragmented demented I'm stagnated in neutral, Misplaced my cravings
siping dry flamboyant, I'm killing condemplantion, reservations reserveded

I'm entertaining harsh paragraphs a few parables passages songs commandments
trying to be forgiving, all this from the lips of a low life junkie enthusius who
once loved Heroin, allowing my pornographic pungent populated  audits to be
counted, I used too live in a hubble a one room slave cabin old house, dumping
false faith on too a album cover, with a peace of a straw I inhaled my happiness

The future now held in a few moments wonderfulness feelings, the itching and 
scratching, sweating and narding, the uforia now somebody loves me, now I'm
not ugly anymore, I can look at myself with out crying and wanting to die

But another day is coming, where I must be me again, no way to find an end
I have to sworn statement my tears, for I'am dying instead of dying, I now
take pleasure in sleeping with bereavement, I'm trying to bring on a spiritual

At midnight I'm always coughing choking bringing up melanoma, my life is dying
as if i'm on vacation, a latter remission it was bound to come back and get me
I'm not of sober dying is a understatement understanding, I'm not worth it,
a poor, poor black boy of shakespearean black ghetto victorian with no references

I had no will to live no dreams no admorations no spirituaness I don't sing in the
rain with roller skates on, I've gotten sum what used to pain, because it loves me
and no afraid to touch me all the time, I have no soul that flows, seldom having major 
strokes if it wasn't for nothing I wouldn't have a thing in my life.
