Poem: Happy Little Pill

Dear oh dear
happy little pill
You’re all I need
to make me feel

You’re all I need
to help these wounds heal
But what a short-lived fantasy
As I’m bleeding still

bent-objects-sleeping-pills

Like a seed
I plant you deep
inside of me

 

Take my world of
black and white
Let buckets of blue and violet
rain into the sky

With a massive sea
of brown and green
water life into
the nature and trees

With pink and yellow
introduce me with a “Hello”
to the beauty within
the flower petals

Dear oh dear
happy little pill
when the reality of here
becomes too much to deal
like a fishing rod
you help me to reel

You help me to chill
but you keep me so numb
by turning my broken heart
into an icebox

Dear oh dear
happy little pill
like cheap makeup
you keep the truth of me concealed
To the masses, you
keep me an appeal
but will oh will
I ever be real?
