Silent Junkies

So you think you have mastered the Art-of-Deception and its okay to play deadly games with your life because you have concealed your vise?

Let me be the one who informs you that there is always a glance that knows that deadly secret, which you hide behind your plastic laughter…

You are not the first and you still have a little time to regain control of your mind…

That voice you keep hearing that tells you it’s okay to live a lie, has hurt many others before you…

That seductive and destructive voice that tells you to pick up that Drink, or Needle, or Pipe, or Pills and enjoy your life, is the lie keeper and will turn you into a full time weeper…

Wake up to the realization that the devastation that you are causing to yourself may thrill you until it kills you...

I have seen you with your red tired eyes, moving back and forth through the crowd as if you were invisible…

Seen you looking bewildered and disheveled as if the devil hit you in the head with his shovel…

There is always someone watching and you better start paying attention, because death is watching too and he is waiting patiently for Silent Junkies like you…

Hi Malik, i enjoyed this. Great read! This was a deep and powerful poem. Drug addiction is a terrible thing. It truly destroyed peoples lives.

Stay safe and healthy.
