Pleasing Poison

Pleasing Poison

A Poem by Tahsin.Z🍁
"

.

"

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

There is a fellow that we pass most everyday
for years his brain was laid away
miserable and unfriendly
a real dud
then he started smoking it in a pipe
and it made his attitude very bright
now he's a fairly pleasant sight
that drugs seem to have made alright

you form/layout is impressive (including poem)
that must have taken some brain squeezing to create
great write

Undeniable true said, John. Thanks so much for your visit :)
Very thought-provoking! Sometimes in our darkest moments in life we reflect on what brought us there and what we had planned. At the same time, we also look for any way to escape our pain with a facade of pleasure to relax our minds. Then the pain continues to rear its ugly head until we decide to face it. Yet, sometimes we never do.
