A piece of foil

She sits at home alone
  Quietly sinking in her comfort zone.
 Loneliness feeds her soul.
  The emptiness takes a toll.
No other way to go.
  She heads to the corner store.

A quick relief to fill that void
  Her love, lies in a piece of foil.
Just another hit, to face the day.
  Takes her to that, private getaway.
Brings her to higher heights
  No transportation needed, to take 
This flight.

Where she goes, nobody knows,
  She finds elated peace, 
to devine to Define.
 Trapped in a cruel body, thats just 
  Doing time.
Embodiment of her being, left behind

Slowly descending back to her destination.  
  Reality is not, her intention.
Comes back home, sitting alone,
  The door slowly opens.
"Honey im home"

    You obviously have a sense of the weaknesses that can pull people under in their struggles. Very perceptive take on that kind of challenge :)

    Cherie, It's just about going out and getting a pack of cigarettes you'll be right back....NOT. Been there. Addiction is tough. Find a love of something and concentrate. People love you and care. If you need a friend to lean on then lean on me. Kilmer

    Your lovely kilmer...thankyou big hugz for that comment. Its partly a fictional write on drug addiction although, ive never been a addict I can honestly say I had a time when life was meaningless & empty, & experimenting to fill that void I used pot weed marijuana, whatever they call it now lol but that was a long x ago...we live & we try & learn. Appreciate your kind comment xxoo cherie

    Hi Matthew, thanks so much for your comment & I listened to "mothers little helper", I never heard that song before. I see the resemblance, yes very true!! The best "drug", is poetry:) thanks for sharing, the song with me & your lovely comment appreciate it peace & <3 cherie....

    Reminds me of the Rolling Stones song - "Mother's Little Helper" which was also about a woman's use of substances to reach the "artificial paradise". The best "drug" is poetry! You capture a woman in trouble in this fine, enigmatic work. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Beauty within the sadness, an emotional write depicting a reality that plagues more than we care to admit. Self medicating to a place of numbness when reality just hurts way too much. Well expressed and thought provoking.

    Been There Done That Way Too Many Times To Ever Forget, This Fire Unto These Flames, Beautiful Cherie ˜ This Is Very Powerful Within Real As Sincere Terms Her Reflecting A Billion Shattered Mirrors ? I Do Believe That For Reasons Unbeknown Unto Ourselves At This Moment In Time At Least Within The Truest Of Clarities, That Our Body's Our Flesh Are Our Worst Enemy's ? I Love Your Poem, Because I Love Beauty ˜ Love, John
