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. πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha! Cheers dude πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰
