Pick it up

since it feels like you’ve dropped it,

search around

since it feels like you’ve lost it,

drop to the ground

since it feels just like medicine

Medicine:

feels so good,

a puff,

another,

you don’t wanna pass,

but you have to;

 

Continue moving so the smoke doesn’t linger,

with you,

chasing after you,

until you pick it all up,

pick everything up that you’ve dropped and lost

take them anyway,

grades are wavering and you’re suspended,

take them anyway,

doctor says it’s not okay,

take them anyway,

knives upstairs used every day

 

use them anyway,

 

take your medicine,

 

pick it up,

 

search around,

 

but you won’t find your life,

 

and you’ll drop
