Ode To Tommy

Sasha Thurmond

Tommy, my timeless love
You left me up North
A split second to oblivion
Black blanket, a starless night
Rain daggers stabbing my heart
An iron beast dragged your body
Down the highway to no where
A figurehead  on a ship lost at sea
You whispered in my ear
"Go South with our menagerie
Start a new life
I'll be beside you
Trust me, You must be brave."
