Drug Love


We don’t judge, no, we don’t care
No need to think, we’ll take you anywhere
Don’t even need to know your name
And we don’t care from where you came

Just one taste, just one puff
That’s all it takes, now that wasn't so tough
In just a moment, the pain is carried away
Escape inhaled and there’s nothing to say

Wearing empty smiles and dancing in crowds
Her heart’s broken glass, embedded shrouds
But’s it’s okay, the pain's all gone
She says everything’s fine, no, nothing’s wrong

Broken beauty, falling from grace
Of her former self, there is no trace
Fingers ice cold, breaths of smoke
The laughing echoes, but it’s no joke

Blue cracked lips and faded cheek
Never seen the world look so bleak

But we don’t judge, no, we don’t care
Do you hear that song in the air?
Aren't you beautiful now? Aren't you happy now? Aren't you lovely now?
In the end they’re all the same,
Humans trapped in a drug love game

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
