New Poetry Wednesday – Opium

Opium

Push me off the path
Infrequent footsteps
Do only wrong
In the eyes unseen
Damage the scene
Along sides overgrown
Push me off the path
Not getting any better
Hear the opium speak
Riddles where I wish
I felt so much better
Block it out inside
Coursing through pathways
Seek out new patterns
Feather out veins it finds
Do only wrong
Infrequent footsteps
Push me off the path
Vat of opium to greet
Skinned knees
Broken ankles
Do only wrong
In eyes unseen
Cloudy under opium’s song
Streak through veins
It found wanting more
