Halloween Candy (Itís a real killer)

It started out as a simple mistake.
Inhaling much more than I could take.
My heart beat faster and it felt so good.
Not even realizing I took more than I should.
It started with manic laughter and troubled thoughts.
Subconsciously thinking of life's battles fought.
My body says its tired but my mind won't rest.
That all too familiar feeling within my chest.
There goes everyone I knew, now Iím on my own.
First signs of panic when I couldnít find my phone.
Scarring myself, I find relief in the darkened bathroom.
The faded reflection in the mirror whispers certain doom.
I wanted to run but there was nowhere to run too.
Not this time anyway, wishing I could run to you.
So lost and confused in complete darkness.
This new found joy impossible to harness.
I was there. I remember it like yesterday.
Though you all said it didnít happen that way.
Days turned into nights a continuous cycle of highs.
Until that one day I did way too much and I lost my life.
