Poem: Sedate me.. Bring unto me the chemical calm.
Quieten the brain, still the tongue, numb the pain.
Save me from myself.
In this place I am still.
Not happy, but warm and comfortable.
At last I can rest, lay my weary head,
sleep a dreamless sleep free from the thoughts that plague me like a thousand buzzing pests.
So bring unto me the chemical calm,
it will do me no harm.
Until I wake...
Consciousness hits like the bite of a snake.
I am in pain yet again.
There is nothing sadder than the sadness of nothing
When all is well but you are not...
