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

The drugs don't work.
Well, they do for a time.
Sadly a short time.

Agreed! Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)
I knew many who loved drugs. The drugs took them. Many love drugs more than life. Thank you Tahsin for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are right Tahsin. I lost three brothers to alcohol and drugs. You are welcome my friend.
