Drugged


It's an addiction.
Losing all my will from within.
I'm addicted to the pills that destroy my will.
My will to be of any purpose to live and try.
Midas well die, and maybe then I can touch the sky.
Take more pills to try and cure my ills.
That are imaginary and transparent and nonexistent.
But with these pills I will bring forth my skills of...
Imagination to create destinations away from frustration.
As my contemplation no longer exists within my realm.
As the drug takes me higher than any elevation.
With persuasion of such persuasive withdrawals leave me,
Seeing things I'm not believing as my heart is pleading.
Please stop! I'm seeing things that are deceiving to all.
Even my head tries to make me fall deeper as I sleep.
With such nightmarish dreams that are nothing but demons.
Demons that have been conjured by the magic of hell.
Made by these drugs to tell me I'm no longer myself.
No longer in health, but in hell.
I'm theirs to hold, and I'm theirs to control.
And from the moment I started the bell had tolled.
Life's Over.

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
