No Drugs

Beauty in flames
as smoke flies like silent fireworks
capturing fireflies of happiness
in a jar of mistakes

see the world in darkness
flooding with despair
until inhaling another breath
of lying tainted air

blinded by insanity
the curtains close on reality
and open to false freedom

wings take me higher
but they're actually chains
dragging me down

to a place I can only be freed from if I put the flame out

my strength has become a broken light
that will never help me win this fight
if I try to fix it alone

my blindfold is life once again
to the world where my pain is not at an end

the flame is put out by the rain pouring from my eyes
and although I've shed tears through saddened cries
my strength has become to flicker
