White Dragon

He was chasing the white dragon
as he sat puffing on his hubby bubbly
soon he was afloat in a world of dreams
not a care in the world for his family
who would, again, go hungry this night

He sat squandering his and their lives
carried of into obliquity  by the heroin
his two daughters crying with hunger
still he puffed on, lost, lost to them all
consumed by the white fiery dragon

An addict to the power of the drugs
forever lost to their grasping clutch

    Hi Shadow, Firstly, thank you for your comments on my verse. I admire your writing, seemingly simple yet poignant. Addiction is a little like pulling leaves of a daisy, until you are left with only one leaf left to pull. Sandra Monica

    Shadow How hard-hitting the devastation you describe so uniquely. Perhaps one of the saddest things in the world. Innocent children in the (so-called) care addicted parents. Thanks for reading my poem. Kathy
