The Drug

The asphalt forms the perfect landscape
Its been laid down for these words
Its been placed here for this very escape
But its been created for the backwards

And its my only company 
As i lay in box of broken hearts
It rains and it turns shiny
Wetting its many black parts

The needle pinches the senses
And then lets them go free
As i finally go through those majestic changes 
And find myself facing the sea

Its beauty suddenly transfixed as if paused
But the waves still crash in luscious white
Gods wet tears is what this has caused
All of this thrown into my weak sight

My box has suddenly disappeared 
But it is not this that i have feared
For my fears are pointless in my youth
For i never am able to speak the truth

A black rabbit hops by crossing the sky
It is my size precisely 
But i dont look at its eyes closely
For by doing so i feel as though i could die

But it turns and tells me to follow
In a voice that is chosen not by choice
It leads me through trees of purple and yellow
My needs become hollow and i rejoice

I look up to see whether it is night or day
But the rabbit urges me on telling me "this way"
We come to a clearing and i see the suns ray
And it tells me that in it i must go and lay

So i go to the middle of the clearing and ly down
In the harsh light i cant see where exactly i be
My breathe becomes short as i begin to drown
Why would the rabbit ever want to kill me

Suddenly i cant breathe anymore 
And before me appears a door
And far off i hear a lions roar
Something that has always chilled my core

But wait the roar came from the door
I feel myself losing life from lack of air
I stand up i find i must explore what its for
From the trees emerges an enormous bear

I grab the door handle but its locked
And my fingers are now keys 
The bear charged followed by bees
My index unlocked and through it i walked

The door closes behind me and its dark
Pitch black abbyss that my eyes dont miss
I try to find the door but its left not even a mark
I must be brave and get out of this

I try to turn back around but im falling
Why is there no wind blowing my hair
Its on God that i am now calling
But to smite him i would never dare

A light below draws nearer
And it envelopes me completely
And brings me to a mirror
And i see my face arranged not neatly

I realize what this was all for
As the light brings me back to before
I must turn this ugly page
And enter a new age

    yeah drugs can put you through more than you ever thought they would when you start them, but that ending stanza says it all, this was a wonderful poem that i am glad i read. Jo
