Dragon Seed

Post by phyx » Fri Nov 01, 2013 6:07 pm

There’s an old man up the hill
that sells a happy, little pill.
Dragon’s seed, they call the ride,
that makes you feel STRONG inside.

“You’ll see the colors and the light.
Experience the gift of flight!
It will open up your eyes
to ecstasy between your thighs.
The highest cloud in the sky,
an adventurous epic high.”

They didn’t warn me of the pains,
the fire boiling in my veins...
the scales fighting to surface,
gaping wounds... blood... and puss.
Misshapen bone breaking skin,
slowly changing me within,
the tail I feel, when I sit...
God... please... another hit.

The phyx is... IN.

[My little brother's clean for 7 1/2 months, after being told the next time would kill him. He got bad Parkinson's symptoms.
My good friend is back in prison, after serving 6 years for it and getting out clean. Didn't make it a month.
Evil shit.]

Let's just hope the old man up the hill wasn't handing any of this stuff out last night to the wee little dragons...

Thanks!

It wasn't supposed to be a poem. It just happened. When I noticed it, I just reformatted, shifted some words around, and reworded a couple things.

Also... what does that little gold dude by your avatar represent?
My little brother's clean for 7 1/2 months, after being told the next time would kill him. He got bad Parkinson's symptoms.
Well congratulations to him. I'm glad he came out of it.
My good friend is back in prison, after serving 6 years for it and getting out clean. Didn't make it a month.
Evil shit.
Sorry to hear... and I agree. Chasing a high is one thing... chasing it until you've destroyed yourself is another altogether.

Gold dude = people who are currently (or very recently were) online. :) I used to think it was the derpy "I'm a newbie" marker until, several months and several hundred posts later, it just didn't go away. :-p

Loved this one! Fun rhymes, good imagery, pacing - all around brilliant. Wouldn't mind more in this style.
