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

Keep up with your writing. :)
You have chosen excellent words to express his agony and describe his trap. It takes a tender heart to observe and understand this kind of human suffering. You have that ability. Keep it up Tasin.

Yayyy!!!😃
This is an exquisite piece of writing. There's quite a bit of this that really appeals to my own way of writing, with such sophisticated vocabulary & alliteration & intensity. I love the precision with which you describe each detail of this ritual. Having had my own years of heavy pot smoking, you've painted this hopeless ritual in a way that's authentic. Great work! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
