You told me it would make me feel good
Take me to heights never reached
Keep me fly
You promised it would take the pain away
Numb me to the point I wouldn’t’t feel the hurt that comes with existence
‘Dance with me’ you said
‘Join me on this groove of life’
‘Let me make it easy’
You said with that seductive scent
‘Let me show you just how fun life is
Under the rainbow lights’
Like a moth to a flame I was drawn
How could I resist such a honey coated deal
How could I say no to what seemed to be the
Answer to everything.
I wasted no time
Clinging desperately to the tree
Inhaling the heady scent
Of the poisonous perfume.
You however, forget to warn me
of the crash when the joint burns out.
You forgot to warn me that I needed more of you
You forgot to warn you that I would
Become your slave.
