Acid

A drop of liquid
A touch of paper
Dancing on my tongue
Creating a wonderfully
Twisted reality where
Painted walls melt and buildings
Seem to slant towards each other like an
M.Escher nightmare as a brick foyer
Becomes a sinking mass of roaring waves.
Is this:
Bliss?
Satori?
Nirvana?
My brain has never known such sensations
Like these as my body heat increases
Making me want to tear thru and tear off
My clothes for relief as
My heart beats every-so quickly to
Keep up with my whirling brain.
I want to be free of my clothes and
Done with the triteness of life since
These feelings are new and fresh giving me
Thoughts about the creation of
Word fill my head as
Even Shopping for shoes with Mom becomes
An Exercise in Universal comedy.
I’m sure she knows as
I blather on and on.
She never lets on, though,
Lending me a false sense of
Security and cleverness.
A cigarette would steady my nerves
Ugh!
Tastes like cardboard shit, but yet
I smoke on as I hope
I never come down
From this blessed weirdness. I finally
Come down after fourteen hours
Realizing it has been
Quite a trip.

Artist's Description

This is one of my first poems that I did based off an acid trip I took when in college. It’s probably for mature readers, but I wanted to post this here, because, well, it means a lot to me, and it was my first poem.
