TO BE LOST

To be lost in a world

of crying confusion;

bewilderment, fear

and drug induced delusion.

 

The world around you

just comes and goes,

drifting through fog

and dense falling snow.

 

Every beat of your heart

sends a dizzying pulse

of tainted blood,

too strong to repulse.

 

The ground beneath

your aching feet

starts to tremble and shake,

you’re feeling weak.

 

You fall but never

hit the giddy ground,

just watch it spinning

round and around.

 

A whirling leaf,

as the Jenny falls

and you cry, in vain,

at the pain in your calls.

 

With a featherlight touch

and a sigh so soft,

you finally reach the floor,

the wild world spins aloft.

..

To be lost in a world

of crying confusion;

bewilderment, fear

and drug induced delusion.

    “Drug induced delusion.” Well put my friend. A thrill, however cheap, however dear always has an expensive consequence.
