The venom

Poison the dropper

Soften the skin

Lean your head back

And take it in
Venom, merci

It’s pumping through our arteries

There certainly is a lot of it

Coursing through me
Chemical rage, chemical failure

It’s everywhere! It’s everywhere!

Will someone find an antidote?

I’m getting really scared
The toxins take many forms

They’re chameleonic that way

Anger, sadness, failure, fate

Can we keep all the demons at bay?
Society condemned

Afraid to go in, afraid to go out

Saying too much or too little

For fear of what others may say
Bomb out, rebirth

Prep me up for the hearse

Evil belly, wide girth

At least it could be worse
But could it?

Is it really not so bad?

Can we really find a cure?

Reclaim the love we all once had?
There really is no cure

Only a constant treatment

Love and laughter pure

Our new souls, condition mint.

  1. Love and laughter is the only way to survive this. Great poem. 🙂

    !Can we really find a cure?… Reclaim the love we all once had?”. Those verses truly resonated with me. I felt the loss, which happened long time ago.
    Our society poisons us in many ways. The major paradox is that it creates (and soon after implants) toxins and antidotes at the same time.
    Excellent poem!… sending love & best wishes 😉

  4. Afraid to go in, afraid to go out, saying too much or too little–I think we’ve all felt this way.

  6. Ahh, the analogy of emotions to a chameleon! So brilliant. It’s so true, right? Never thought of that, ever, but now that you’ve made that connection for the reader, I won’t forget it.


    Thanks for the stop by earlier. I was gone for several weeks and I lost many of the blogs I follow! Missed your writes, my friend.
