Trying To Overcome The Withdrawals


Rolling.
Tossing and turning.
Can't sleep.
Can't get enough to eat.
These craving are killing me so slowly.
An addiction of weakness.
There all I am thinking about.
Some one drug me, induce a coma.
Finally maybe I could just get some sleep.
Instead of rocking my feet.
Hands jittering.
Teeth clamoring.
Body chills and sweats.
An uncontrollable fever.
Please don't let me relapse.
Please just let me collapse.
No chance to be that mouse after the cheese.
He can sniff it out from anywhere within the maze.
It so much feels like the everlasting cure.
A continuation of only wanting more.
Resisting the unending urge.
Tempting it is to go off the deep end and splurge.
This maybe my last defiant surge.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
