Oh So Sweet Weed

seems like centuries
years stretched out
across this desert
crawling along
lost in some drug induced
euphoria confusion & fear
dreading waking up
to this drab lack-luster world
of daily duties & chores
following their rules
which once I believed in
but now it doesn't matter
none of it does
in this tear draped world
where everything comes at a cost
finding myself alone
at the end of my days
a fool a jester
a mockery of humankind
memories visions & fantasies
passing stray thoughts
all dipped in sweet
oh so sweet weed
turns razor-edged forebodding
black & white nightmares
into sweet pastel coloured dreams-
