overdose

By
Dark circles have formed
You can’t move a bone
Stuttering becomes a habit
You look like you’re stoned
I ask you was wrong
You can’t answer me

Your head is down
You can’t make a sound
Your body keeps twitching
And I keep thinking
Should I tell?

I know something’s wrong
I know you’re not right
Because when I ask you again
Your eyes roll to the back of your head

You’re no longer that cool and funny kid I know
I’m scared for you
And there’s nothing I can do
Because now you’re gone
Because you over dosed on oxycone.

this is really powerful. and it gave me goosebumps. i got scared for this person too. i hope it's fiction. or, that's what you're afraid of for someone. if it is, please, please. don't be afraid to tell. it will save their life.
