Something that bothers me, still in my day to day life. It's repetative in the back of my head and it never seems to cease.

I Drank Poison Once

 

I drank poison once.

But I was fine.

But I drank poison once,

and I thought I was going to die.

That terrifies me everyday.

 

I drank poison once,

My mind won't let me forget.

Or forfeit or swap

The memory I don't want.

 

Such a nice drink.

Is there poison in that?

Who would know it's clear.

Such great food.

Is there any poison in it?

Who would know, it's tasteless.

 

It was an accident.

Of that I'm positive.

but am I sure,

I'm still not poisoned?

 

Not of body, but of mind.

Not of stomach, however much it still burns.

An antidote doesn't seem to work.

Not in a thought, anyway.

An acid corroded not only my stomach lining,

but also my unshakable minding, I'm unshakable but blinding.

Is there poison in that?

Is there poison in that?

Is there poison in that?

Is there poison in that?

Is there poison in that?
