Milestones

BUT WHO WILL I PLAY SLUG BUG WITH?
Now that you’re gone.
Who can I confide in
the way I could confide in you?
Ever since we were kids
your little hand in mine.
You were right there with me
for every milestone in my life.
Remember when I wanted to be a DJ?
Because you had a thing for turn-tables?
You got me into hip hop;
I got you into porn.
We got into drugs together;
But didn’t get out, together.
And I can’t replace that.
Now that all those milestones in my life have passed.
There is no one I can meet tomorrow
who I can build that kind of connection with.
I’ll never get to go back in time
to experience that kind of history with someone else.
I’ve got however-many-years left
to make the best of my life,
and I’m going to spend all those years
out here,
without the one who was always there
for my milestones.
