Pleasing Poison

Pleasing Poison

A Poem by NO MORE

.

"

Furling a piece of foil
into a hollow little roll
he puffs pleasing poison;
sleeps isolated from realism
There are pipe dreams in his eyes,
brightens when twilight disappears
His comatose brain films radiant reveries
at night, within his mind’s stilled senses
Ordeals of failure constrained him to shut
the shop of sterling virtues residing in his heart
Switched it to exhibition of aggressive notions;
inaugurated bad blood between him and life
When he finds no pleasing poison,
lacerating arms calms him down
Thirst and hunger abandoned
He’s a spectacular skeleton
in loneliness’s grave
  sans elation

Awesome piece about addiction powerful and relentless, I've never been a heroin addict but I have tried it and it takes all your troubles away, when you are the bottom of the s**t pile, what's not to like, unfortunately. great poem.

The devil's dance armed in foil a viscous killer of hope and soul.

Good to hear
Wow girl, those last three lines are amazing. The whole thing has that shaky feeling of being out of control in this hazy and lost sort of way. So glad this is not a road that I ever went downI have enough issues with my cocktails at happy hour!! Really good Tahsin!!!

~inaugurated bad blood between him and life~is my favorite line.

You describe in detail someone who has taken a turn in life for the worse. I've seen this type of person and I pity them. The road ahead will be long and arduous.

Nice writing, Tahsin.
