            A SUDDEN REIGN 

I can't avoid puddles or the rain
when seditious storms sneak up on me
wet, woeful and bound by pain
although I try to free myself, unsuccessfully

junkies are forever standing in storms
waiting, hoping and praying in silence
I run faster when I see black clouds beginning to form
but I can't outrun the rain or addiction's violence

for violent is the world of the wretched like me
who chase dreams, dragons and  are chased by weakness
I hope one day to be free from this reality
but for now i'm beleaguered by bleakness

I need a roof to protect me from horrid squalls
as I soak in the sordid nature of my sins
then I watch in horror as the dealer man turns and runs when thunder calls
and the lightening and pelting hailstones begin
