DELUSIONAL

 DELUSIONAL

Strapped arm, exposed veins

Longing for that express train

To pick me up and fly me away

To a place forbidden where I long to stray

Drifting through the loosened realm

Hearing voices of morbid sound

Unwinding through this illusory trip

The deceptive antidote may cause me to slip

Yet my body hungers for it’s addictive feed

My mind shrieks cries of dismal pleads

So longing to visit comfortably numb

Wasted…I’m omitted, the drug I’ve become

Will reality try to draw me back somehow

Will those demons jerk me with their indecent howl

The serenity of this hypnotised, spellbinding state

Leaves me to my own devices, my own world to create

To bring me back is to invite pain

To alert me requires myself to blame

Wasting to bodged skin and skinny bone

Entices me to wander hopelessly alone

Please don’t withhold me from this high

My transfer is not complete, inwardly I die

My loved ones can’t understand each passage I roam

Delusional is my destination, my foreboding home
