It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

i am slowly drifting away
the more i smoke
the more i fade

fading away to a place unknown
i begin to levitate
no sense of gravity
i reach the clouds
no clarity
i begin to contemplate if this is reality
surely this cant be real
feeling so free
learning to fly
being to the captain
why do i choose to continue down this path
willing to do almost anything to escape
refusing to take my life
in the clouds is where i stay
the lonely stoner
frees her mind at night

closing my eyes
waking to a new day
everything is the same
i still feel this pain
it never goes away
so to the blunt
i stray
fading away
once again
