I inhaled a feeling of uncertainty,
braving the risks of a fleeting freedom.
Troubled thoughts that once consumed me,
to bathe in a sweet enthralled plasm.
Tiptoed blindly to a desperate addiction,
paraded in a zealous demeanor.
Engulfed by overwhelming satisfaction,
to forget a tangible human factor.
I inhaled this feeling of certainty,
to bathe in this sweet seduction.
I danced to the high it brought me,
this drug that fueled my imagination.
I swam in a shallow reef of desperation,
this body, wounded, bruised, tortured.
Paraded zealously in a guised fashion,
finally forgotten this tangible human factor.
I awoke, alone, hurt, and infinitely broken,
still bleeding from the hurt I once knew.
My drugs left me dry, this body – softened,
a lesson painfully learned - anew.
I inhaled a feeling of uncertainty.
