The Ultimate Fix

The Ultimate Fix

A Poem by Livenrite

gloom, torture, darkness

pain that's neverending

confusion leads to anger

the future's always pending


thus you search for me

a.k.a. The Ultimate Fix

I can keep your shoulders light

from the load of heavy bricks


this is when you find me

a greeny plant named weed

you start off with one joint

your want is now a need


when the need is not enough

you want a stronger me

this is when i shift

into the form of ecstacy


becoming more acquainted

highs are no longer the same

snorting is the new style

I'm your white powdered cocaine


your bloodshot eyes still search

addiction is now your sin

elastic sqeezes your arm

injecting me as heroine


you're taking it too far

your friends say you're insane

you're just asking for death

inhaling the canned butane


your lungs won't hold no more

you lay there for a while

ever so lost to realize

I could have been a loving smile

I love the build, the flow, growing stronger as the dominos fall to the cliffs edge and crash over.
Then the reveal of something so simple could have halted the unneeded journey.
I agree with everyone below, Well Done.

You see I find this a mind's palate cleanser. Kind of like the sorbet between meals, I read quite a lot of poetry, so thank hoodedness you have written a piece I can sit back and relay with, well done.

"when the need is not enough
you want a stronger me

into the form of ecstacy"
