Dope Sick



I didn't know it was possible  
to withdraw from psych meds  
I've been feeling hellish lately  
stomach doing double flips  
body aches, cold sweats, skin crawling  
been hurt  

my mind hasn't been on point either  
played some mean tricks on me  
paranoia, manic fits  

today I see the doc
to see which one is the culprit  

I've taken them as I'm supposed to  
so I wonder why the withdraw?  
is it because I'm so manic  
or am I manic for lack of meds?  

my system seems to eat them up  
not enough left for me to coast on as normal  

hell if i'd known
they were going to do this  
I wouldn't have taken them  
I've spent many years
withdrawing off something  
docs knew it
when I kicked methadone
in the psych ward  
yet they gave me these pills  

& I took them without question  
cos I just wanted a damn cigarette
