A resilient addict with corona

Believes he is immune as a stoner

Puts Mary Jane on the mask

And Jimmy Beam in his flask

Fortifies his deluded persona

Quite soon though his supply is depleted

In withdrawal he feels so mistreated

Smokes sanitizer

And fertilizer

Wrapped in loo roll...Read More

Are the walls smokin
I'm a clothes addict, my flow's magic
8 miles underground to choke rabbits
Nose habit that grows when I overdose 
But speak truth so it shrinks like Pinochio
Take lines a pony won't, stay unstable
Experiment, opperate and lay on tables ..

Premium Member The Happy Addict
Gave Shark catnip and he turned into a hippie
Took me straight back to the seventies
Put on his fur vest and fringed headband
Made the peace sign with his paws
Became morbidly mellow
Docile, chilled, rolled onto his back
Soaked up the sun with his...Read More

Clouded mind
As an addict, you think you are alone.
Family and friends turned their backs.
But you are all wrong.

You need to turn your lights on.
Admit to your problems.

Clear up the fog, that's clouded your mind.
Travel towards sobriety
Get back your own life!...Read More

I am addicted
Addicted to word games
Playing others online
Who are also addicted
To word games

My mother loved
Playing Dabble
Her favorite word game
She had to beat the clock
And makes seven words
Out of thirty-two letters

Her legacy to me is
Keep your mind active
Learn something new every...Read More

Love addict
Some kindness a day keeps the devil in my head away 
Whispering I’m useless, 
an anxiety fuelled love addict 
Who will always be alone
Mad with the misery of my mistakes 

But if I vanquish the devil with the same weapon...Read More

Ode to Morse Code
An Ode To Morse code

The click click clack 
from pounded brass 
the words develop extensive
The heat of the tubes 
warms up the room
when temperatures are receded 

Deep into the night 
makes it's flight
to detector diodes rectificated
creates a mellow sound
which is...Read More

Sometimes beneath my skin
It feels like something comes alive;
It crawls so much I cannot sleep,
But without this unrest I would die.
What it is I cannot say
But this crawling tries to take me away,
And if I refuse to go with it,

It’s going down
I’m a clown
I’m a fool
I have no self control
My mind’s possession
All these questions
I’m dramatic
It’s problematic
I think I’m an addict
A tragic
I’m no good
I berate
I fluctuate 
In this mental state
But I’m stable
Not disabled
I’m able
To endure
I’ve got a cure
This disease
This pain

Yet I learned my many lessons with a grinning frown on my face 
It was as if I've been given no second chance
But, God forgives me with his marvelous mercy

Wrinkled forehead creases as he looks at me
From the burgundy sofa where he lives most days
Free of things like water bills and car payments
He lies down to eat and drag slowly on a cigarette

Wipe the Memory
I’m an addict
In recovery 
And I’m kind of glad of it
I don’t want to be
Just another G
Out promoting weed
While I’m planting the idea 
Like a G-13 seed

Read between the lines
And you’ll find I’m blinded
Beating up my mind
And my spines been...Read More
