Marijuana Psychosis

Please God Please, don't let them kill me 
She thought she heard him shout 
His room is locked, the door is blocked
Three days since he's been out 

A million fears he contemplates
Too scared to rest his head
He dare not sleep or close his eyes
Those eyes of bloodshot red 

He tells her what he's hearing 
And she says it isn't there
The doctor said the weed did this 
She says it isn't fair 

Sedation, medication stat! 
To save his mind, his life
Drugs of every shape he took
To fight the one he likes 

Son, please say it's over now 
Your here and yet your gone 
The doctor says you wont be back
I pray to God he's wrong

And in and out, and in and out
The dope smoke that he breathes 
And in and out, and in and out 
The hospital, the streets 

I know your there inside somewhere
His mothers voice was shaking 
I know that when you quit this junk
You'll get back what was taken 

Somehow inside his scattered mind
Her voice said to the drug 
That he again someday would be 
The kid she raised and loved 

And in and out and in and out
The doc, the school, the gym
And in and out, and in and out 
Till he again was him

The dealers came a dozen times
A dozen times denied 
Until the day his clean date was 
A dozen weeks behind 

My son, my son, it's been too long
Please say it's you this time
He pointed to his head and said 
I've taken back what's mine 

By Kyle Ezra Kriticos 
Dedicated to those who "never came back" from marijuana induced pyschosis

    yeh this one has a nice flow, nice story. I don't know about this "marijuana induced psychosis" or Pyshosis or whatever it's referred to here. Sounds a bit fishy.

    This is a wonderful, yet tragic poem Kyle, I am so glad it had a happy ending, as you say many people are not so lucky, love Elizabeth
