I Engage

i swallow the pain up
drinking alcohol beverages a'till i throw my blood up
i exhale a'till my heart beats up
i live through pressure that disrupt my sleep
pockets full of prescription narcotics inside so deep
i struggle inside
keep telling myself that i'll die
i see the manipulation now
i see that i'm only a lonely creation
living in a physical environment at home
i'm feeling like i'm going die
now i have tremors and watery eyes
blood full of morphine
i'm not a drug fiend
i'm just lost
opium poppy i just toss
codeine in my body now i'm dead
i go everywhere my body will take me
you think you can judge me
i just wash you away
cant stay home so i run away
you interfere in my daily life
but i cant live without you

    Not bad at all. Helplessness is a very depressing sympton to say the least and I can sympatise with the situation illustrated here. I think maybe for improvement you should try adjusting some of the wordings so that it can flow a little easier with the reader-which shouldn't be hard becuase the idea is all there. I look forward to reading more and thank you for sharing.
