To be lost in a world
of crying confusion; bewilderment, fear and drug induced delusion.
The world around you
just comes and goes, drifting through fog and dense falling snow.
Every beat of your heart
sends a dizzying pulse of tainted blood, too strong to repulse.
The ground beneath
your aching feet starts to tremble and shake, you’re feeling weak.
You fall but never
hit the giddy ground, just watch it spinning round and around.
A whirling leaf,
as the jenny falls and you cry, in vain, at the pain in your calls.
With a feather light touch
and a sigh so soft, you finally reach the floor, the wild world spins aloft.
To be lost in a world
of crying confusion; bewilderment, fear and drug induced delusion. Written on April 2014. Revised 17th February 2016. Enigmatic thoughts on Depression Purposeful words about Drugs Poems on Pain

It’s nights like these when I feel like an irony living within itself radiating love yet feeling unloved. It’s night like these when I can’t recognize what tomorrow holds or recall what yesterday held. I feel like an insect crawling
