Drug Dealer
I prey on the crutches of mankind.
I prey on the minds of those who
Cannot handle life as it splays before them
As a prostitute giving out for free.
I sell sweet relief
For the troubled heart…
I sell what takes a bright future
And  then turn it into a lifetime of haze.
I hunt those who falter,
And take what they earn
For my own gain.
People are my tools—
They help me meet my own ends,
And then I throw them away.
I take the clarity from those who cherish it so.
People are my exploitation—
I move through these barren lands
Searching for those who desire what I have to give…
The gift of numbness from bitter pain.
The gift of a fractured reality
Where no one else may linger.
The gift of blindness
So that they may not see their destined fall.
The gift of a downward spiral—
Come one, come all.
I will take whatever you may give,
You Creatures of Habit…
I’ll even prey upon the lust you have
So that I may be pleased as well.
I prey on those who are afraid to feel,
Those who are afraid to change.
I fuel the fire that condemns love
To a cycle of misfortune.
I take your addiction
And awaken it with a call—
I sell you the drug of choice with a smile.
Pick your poison well,
Because I want to keep you
Hooked in my design—
Drowning in your own mindless indulgence.
 I want you to die alone,
With a pill in your hand
And depression lining your face.
You are mine through weakness
Until you choose to fight for a better life—
Fight hard,
Because I will not let go of my own fix easily.
