Advil

(Posted in a forum about your first experience taking drugs: free-style& no edits).

--------------------------------
I am a geek
I guess a freak
I am a nerd
A hopeless bookworm

My Mother, stern
Forced on me words to learn
To far excel
Thus creating this hellish realm

Late nights I stayed up
“Balancing” on the cusp
I barely maintained
My mind did started to frail

I read and read
With lighting speed
To ace my assignments was the bottom-line
Honour Roll Student on my grind

Drinking rum, chilled
And taking advil
To ease the migrains
Just to stable my mind-frames

Popping pills and drinking
More popping pills than drinking
Then... because the headaches would not go away

It started off with two pills a day
Just to keep the throbs delayed
Two every four hours, turned into four every two hours
-- thats like thirty-six pills per day???

Factor in, maybe, five hours of sleep
For insomnia now slowly developing
And hooked on fucking advil???

Then one day the bottle was finished
My nerves where shot, I was diminished
I bawled and screamed for more
I threw a tantrum broke my lantern
–lucky no one was home

I slapped myself
Drew in a deep breath
Said: No more taking advil
Fourteen, just a teen
What are you doing popping fucking advil?
