When old friends fall

Last night I was at the apartment complex that houses a number of my aquaintences. I sat with some old friends and had a couple drinks while watching "Blow" on dvd.

There was a knock on the door and my host answered it, it was a mutual friend. He asked to speak to me privately, and I walked outside to chat with him. He was begging for money, this time for crack. His eyes had this terrified aggression to them. I didn't give him any money.

I've never seen someone cracked out like that, so deep in the need for a drug and so painfully awake. I decided that discretion was the better part of valor and I hightailed it to my car. This guy is a friend, but I don't know how great his need is, he could very well have decided to mug me.

How bizarre, to have light laughing conversations with someone one day, and the next be in fear of violence from them without provocation. And to see a friend fall to that point, brings no small pain either.

So this morning I got a call from the people who's house I'd been watching the movie at. They said that immediately after I left, the guy was over at their house begging for money, and trashing me.

I have seen it many times before. I have had people steal, lie, beg, cry, try to get me to write checks and was once carjacked all for dope. It is an evil thing.
