time seems to stand still
even though the clock ticks
one more hour
until he gets his fix
his mind wanders
and in his conscience he is convicted
he craves the feeling in his veins
'cause on coke and heroin he's addicted
if he doesn't get it
in his mind he will die
if he does
his troubles will go bye-bye
the spoon gets hot
and the powder begins to melt
in the syreing he puts the liquid
on he arm goes the belt
the vein pops up
and the needle punctures the skin
his thumb presses down
and the drug goes in
his mind brakes free
and his thoughts fly away
now he has the fix
to bring him through the day

Graphic. But an apt description of those addicted-sad that they need a fix to get them through.

Jesus, nicely written, though not a subject I like to read about, my dear old friend of many years is in it too, up to the hilt, and none of us can pull him back..
It's all just too sad..
