Withdrawal - Poem by Barry Middleton

my brain is in a shamble
I guess it's got to ramble

and where it goes
I'm pleased to some degree

my heart tells me I miss
if I pass up a kiss

I get advice
and it's good advice from me

I just think twice and know
the way I need to go

if it goes wrong
I've none to blame you see

so if I'm in shamble
I guess I'll take the gamble

it all comes from
so deep inside of me

the music plays inside
with nothing left to hide

it all comes from
so deep inside of me

Topic(s) of this poem: cancer, crazy, drugs

    Many of my stranger poems where written while in the middle of chemotherapy of withdrawing from the awful steroids they made me take. (Report) Reply
