We Sure Killed the Pain

I might die from the drugs
but I sure killed the pain,
the wheels are not
falling off! I yell as
I try to tie the strings
of my cotton smock,
I can’t even look at their faces,
why are they trying to save me?
I don’t belong here
or anywhere.
I’m a hungry ghost
with no place to go,
I’m starving,
thought there was love
in the drug
but it robbed me of it entirely.
They don’t get it.
I run as fast as I blacked out
but I’m lost,
literally and metaphorically,
running around in my
cotton smock
the strings aren’t tied
just dangling on the side.
No one stops me
they’re too scared,
scared for their children,
what have I become?
I yell as I run away
I can’t believe they
saw me this way.
I might die from the drugs
but I sure killed the pain,
it was insane.
