You And I

You and I

Share our own little world

It’s not the only world

But this one is just ours

We rise in mid afternoon

We go to sleep

when the sun comes up

Our bar stays open 24 hours a day

We can smoke in it too

We have our friends

But see them rarely

They tend to just hold us back

Bring us down

For we have work to do

We write, drink, smoke, fight, sleep

We’re much too busy

To let them, most of the time

And besides

This is our world

Not theirs

Our special place

Not theirs

We share it

And share it well

You and I
