A needle in your arm filled with madness,
A pill in your throat swallowed like sadness,

A puff of smoke exhaled with a sigh,
a drink to make your memories pass by,

A snort of disbelief through your nose,
A pipe to inhale all your woes,

Say what you want think what you might,
but even metaphorical drugs aren't right,

So show your feelings, discover your fears,
And don't use smoke to hide your tears.

The author's comments:
The words flowed out of me. Along with a lot of emotion.
