Beyond Visions

Reaching beyond visions that I see, wanting to be informed of all inconsistencies as they begin to form in depths of my mind.
Experimenting chemically with many different phases and choices of any and all parts of mind-bending thoughts, reacting chemically with particles left behind on placards of insistent waiting.
Bringing instead, a topical assessment of interior benefits to soothe my mind from all it's trials and suffering just because it's a part of my being.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Having never experimented with drugs or alcohol, this poem seems out of the ordinary, until I tell you that in college, chemistry was my favorite subject of all. Here I'm just referring to chemicals found naturally in all our brains. Brains and minds have always intrigued me and I had planned on becoming a brain surgeon. A misdiagnosis from a doctor messed up my plans when younger and I never got to realize my dream. Now I write about things that happened because of doctor and/or medical mistakes during my lifetime - all of them true and documented in medical records. It taught me to always get a third opinion and then go with your intuition.
