again

they say its forty times stronger than any heroin out in the world today

i thought it could save my aching brain

i thought it could control the pain

who am I now

lost

lethal

flat line they say

sEiZiNg NoW the darkness takes over with one final sweep of my body

sweating, itching

only darkness

this isn’t normal why can’t I breathe right, what am I seeing there’s

my heart rate is changing it can’t be okay

now nausea and vomiting and confusion

no

the same

again

the same

so i tried it again

but wore off even quicker

it hit me fast

i can finally get what i want

it's here now

i built up this immense tolerance how could this crush me

i could never

overdose

but the potential for danger and overdose grows
