opium

Why take help of lies?
sweet dizzying opium!
to heal a broken heart?
wounds don’t need opium!

They need love, balm, care
they need time to heal, repair.
time to stand back on feet,
embrace the harshest reality.

honest love and care
may not dizzy the pain,
but at the end they will heal
bring him back on his feet.

opium will dizzy his senses,
fool him that the wound is not there,
may turn the wound to gangrene
and leave him mutilated for ever .
