the drugs

The drugs

I cannot keep my eyes open

the drugs, they make me sleep

I cannot do what I really want to

the drugs, they make me weak

I cannot say what I want to say

the drugs, they tie my tongue

I cannot think in all clarity

the drugs, they make me wrong

  1. I have chronic, genetic insomnia. I was told my paternal grandmother had it and that was before safe sleep aids. She suffered quite a bit. For me, natural methods don’t work very well anymore, so, I need to take meds more than I like. It’s frustrating. Thanks for the poem. 🙂

    • Oh I hear you, friend! I’m really sorry you’re dealing with this. Chronic insomnia is horrendous. I’m asleep in 3 to 4 hour lots, as long as the drugs last….
      Oh and you are very welcome!🙂🙏

  3. I can relate. I too feel like a light weight at times.
    But don’t forget drugs also expand your mind.
    Drugs can give ya a real good time.

    • Hahaha! Cheers dude 🙂 Sorry I meant as in over-medicated or in my case chemicals are the only thing that has some effect on the nerve damage I have and suffer extreme pain from – 2 medical stuff ups – so unfortunately I am no light-weight! I only wish it were so! I have a pay-off calculation I have to make – pain or brain – I can have one or the other, but not both 😉
