Deceptions

I see smoke and mirrors Deceptions of the mind Are they just glimmers Of what I might find Where have they led me Have I been left alone Is my will still free Or am I now a drone I looked up and saw shadows I felt their groping hands Sinister as black scarecrows And I'm sinking in quicksand Fear grabs ahold of me Puts it's fingers on my heart Drags me down to the sea Begins to tear me apart I hear bloody screams Makes my hair stand up Facing my bad dreams And I wish I could wakeup I see smoke and mirrors Deceptions of the mind Are they just glimmers Of what I might find Where have they led me Have I been left alone Is that my brain I see Or just methadone Written 11/16/16
