The Denial of an Ageing Disgrace

Where's the fucking rizlas man?
I just need a fucking smoke
to take the edge of
starting with just one almighty toke
this week's been shit. I have to say

let's smoke 'til I can't see her face
and can't recall their names
she said that I'm an addict yeah
what does she fucking know?
A few pills every weekend
and a little bit of blow

This world is brutal in its bitter way,

destroying beauty, tarnishing the good,

Hurting the carers, harming those who would

do better with their lives each passing day -

those who, despite all that the doctors say,

take back some control – if only they could

get up from where they drown beneath the flood

of good intentions. So today I pray:

Loving me was rough, and never easy...

A Conversation with Cocaine.

I am the warm arms of a mother
That sweep you up
And carry you away from this pain.
That smother you in happiness
Absent parents couldn’t provide.
You’ll drift for a while.
Then with the flicker of a lid
You’ll slide into clouds of
Sweet perfumed dreams.

Just a child of 15.

Floating from job to job.
Hour to hour.
A withering flower
Blossomed for drought.

Let it happen.

Open the churches to the homeless at night,

No-one should ever have to sleep in the cold,

Our sisters and brothers are not the people to fight,

This is not something we should all have to sit down and be told

Let us unite as we are, in our shame and disgrace,

Our total debasement, our hatred for our face,

Let us see our greed for what it is and be done with it o...

When The Drama of the perfume Fades

The Tossing Tousled hair parades

Settle in a lazy muse and the moon no longer lingers,

 

When the mystery seems tired as the night turns day,

The conversation feels hired as the wine wears away,

 

When reality strings together like a cellists’ tune,

When to move on is to grow and to grow is not leaving,

we speak of heaven and hell like they're not the same demon.

Drift

Drugs, 
self sabotage,
black of night
takes all light.

It snows in wonderland.

I lost my way,
drifted amiss.

The ego took control.

Hope floats,
a distant mess,
somehow less,
never more.

Restart,
begin again,
start anew.

In your view,
my sun shines blue.

Cunning baffling and powerful are the words used to describe,
The truth of what addiction is, it will take your life with a knife.
Everything you thought you were becomes lost,
All that you cherish and love, gone at what cost?

Millions of people struggle everyday and it's truly tough,
Knowing that one is too many and a thousand never enough.

The hardest part

Have you ever tried to kill yourself by holding your breath?
No one's ever died from a lack of sleep...
(I dare you not to try it)
The hardest part of forgetting is when you remember.

Double check yourself, and down it goes.
Get ready, hold on, and jump out of the plane!
Hear the rush, gasp for breath, and let those bells ring.
Jump on that train, follow those tracks.

Poppy

A while ago, before I retired, I was concerned for the welfare of my students on reading a piece discussing the alleged widespread use of the psycho-stimulant Retalin by Australian university undergraduates. As a performance enhancer it was said to often be accompanied by depressants to reverse the effects. For some, it may have served as an introduction to more addictive and even more pernicious ...

Dust

There's no such thing 
as crazy is not sickness.

Conformity is suffocation. 

The pills kill the light, 
all else turns to dust 
and in the rain we all rust.

Lift it up, 
sweep it under, 
show the sun, 
no shame, no thunder. 

God forbid 
the rain should come. 
Can't waste time 
feeling the pain 

pick a box, pick a box 
they're all the same.

Contradiction is inevitable.
Perspective relative.
Monotony is life.
Amnesia saves
drugs,
a selfish freedom from the past.

White open spaces,
existence and impermanence.
Meaninglessness.

a tragedy,

Lost my way in the sun,

wandered through the maze

found my way

free
gold like a river

I let it go,

My yellow brick road

LOVE DRUG

At first love was a pump, a needle,

Eyes wide when your high

...Or see someone you like.

Stifled, we always rivalled

Till no more, the beat became sore

And we spiralled, overdosed,

Hot headed, cold blooded.

Passion became blown out,

The anticlimax of a candle...

Like the heroin ran through her heart,

Like the cocaine contorted her chest,

Like the salvia had shaken ...

Light vs Dark

It's all a trap,

You say just one drink, won't hurt right?

Just one line, I won't do it again.

Just once , I want to try the needle to see what the big fuss is about... 

I'll just kiss you once , like you won't break my heart.

Just to flirt with death and heartbreak seems to be an addication itself.

Flirtation, the most innocent form of doing something that will lead to something...

These Streets

I was born here, under Maggie's rule.
Living beneath her Spitting Image character
hanging from a telecom wire overhead.
The youth here knew hate before they knew love
and everybody hated the Iron Lady.
Everything here was grey; from the rows of well-worn
tenements and dirt-strewn streets to the sunken eyes
of every battered wife.
Violence was rife, accepted as normality.

Can you see the track marks up her arms?
I spy
With my wide eye
The stranger upon her neck.


Like the birthmark of a bloodhound,
Like a grisly flesh pinch,
An angrily sealed wound,
A Chinese burn,

A beating burning bruise,

A bloody blush:
The bite of the hungry.


Teeth she counted like cash,
The molars which paid her fine
And got her Alice's very own wonder

across a tainted floor,

poise slightly bowed

and her back is sore.

a cold marble stare,

a hard life engraved

Her faulting movements,

once graceful; divine,

her aching limbs now

with guile, defy

Yet again he finds himself feeling six feet under,

covered by life bearing soil

The life in which he ponders how he missed.

He inhales,

This time,

His sorrow and self loathing are lifted away

Into the clouds

This is where they remain

For a time that seems ever too short.

He inhales,

Hoping to never return

To his sad reality.

Addiction

She's snapped all her needles and sits cold and alone

Rocking and sweating, her eyes fixed on the phone

A decision to make; which person to call?

Knowing either way, this'll be the end of it all.

 

Should she ring home to her  mam and dad

And return to the life that she once had?

Be drawn back into the family's loving embrace

Standing at their door with no shoes or suitcase

In the only way that you can
You've swallowed all my thoughts

You're perfectly relentless
 
You're simply irresistible

Roadie.

When heavy metal bands reform

when daily excess was the norm
and we needed drugs to help us play.
From riding into the teeth of the storm

The Roadies still get us up to speed,

They’re an invaluable, yet dying breed -
