Beyond this Driftwood Lane I stared into nothingness, as though it was the affair of the mind. Like staring into the chasm of an empty and dark well, looking for a clean way to escape this strong monomania drug-like of you. Yet, here I am again injecting every bit of you back to these hungry veins, like you belong there.
