Just a Moment

I ignore the thoughts in my head
the whispered shouts
that urge me to destroy
all that I have built
I am well in body
but sick in my head
the nature of an addict
relentless desires
The time spent with everyone
yet I am alone
oblivious to others
a mannequin inverted
This black river roaring
through my soul
the dark water drowning
the light of hope
I just want to
kill the pain
get so fucking high
light my sky on fire
Black blood flowing
from a poison heart
tainting all that I touch
with a shadow of despair
Just a moment of my day
and it passes
The sky retains blue
The water is held back
I find an antidote
for my poisoned veins
A mannequin smiles

Just a Moment

Artist's Description

I always have moments throughout the day where I feel like using drugs, just thought I would try to express how it feels. Been clean for 73 months now and it gets better, but never easier.
