Hands start to tremble-

Eyes rolling.

Let your body crumble-

Blood boiling.


Laugh your life away

Drink up your fears

Breath in the day-

Toxins erase the tears.


Laughter- constant laughter.

Eyes rolling. Eyes rolling- back.

Colors churning- blacker blacker.

Fading. Fading- black.


"Damnit wake up! Please..."

Limp, cold, pale.

Drugs and the life they would seize. 

Rain pours to hail.


"He was such a good kid..."

An addict who couldn't heal-

No one would have thought he'd do what he did.

The pain- the pain is real. 


A brother, potential father and friend

Beep. Beep. Beep-

This can't be the end...


And the peaks drop to valleys.

The spoken truth from an outfitted man. Wasting away into an unplaned plan. You captured it! Heart felt.

The description of this poem is remarkable, it floats and in the instant cuts to the deepness of this truth. If this is not your standard style I would include it in your basket of style in the future, well done indeed Vegabond.

You did a good job capturing the end result of addiction, the numbness that can lead to a total blackout. Well done, Thanks
