Haiku

Tiny valium
Softly tips my bare-wire nerves
Sort of like duct tape

For each velvet high
A mean bleak low. How did the
Morning after go?

Vicodin didn't
Last night became morning fog
It's still yesterday

Hee!

Yeah it's not a drug I'll be abusing anytime soon. The tiniest bit works well for what it's supposed to do when you actually need it. But if you don't, the hangover is way too brutal to be worth it.

Same with vicodin these days, more's the pity. I hate it that I can't seem to be able to use drugs recreationally anymore.

Wait, are you sighing over my lamentable inability to abuse things, or that I should ever want to in the first place?

I've never been a very good addict. I actually tried to take up a cigarette habit, but I just ended up getting queasy before I got hooked. Pot started to be way to anxiety-producing for me to take it up as a lifestyle. And even my beloved hallucinogens just ended up feeling like mud in my head once I'd found my into those neural pathways through other means (like martial arts, meditation and a whole lot of studying).

Even opiates, which used to leave me in happy opiated bliss, now mostly just make me hurl. All I can really do at all is alcohol, and even that in small quantities.

I did, however, get addicted to the internet once, as crazed as any junkie. I remember the hideous summer I spent with wires literally tangled around my ankles as I fell asleep wrapped around my keyboard and monitor, and ignored all of my real-life friends in family in favor of the virtual soap opera I was living..

Your pretty Haiku made me nostalgic-!

It's just... a pill takes so much less discipline than my current best alternative of meditation (I need to do more)!

It's just... denial can be so much fun. Up to that point just before it becomes hell on earth.

Nice 'Brazil' type visual on the internet addiction, btw. hahaha :)

Dude. Was that the sound of bubblewrap being obsessively popped, or some version of a sarcastic slow clap? Or your last nerve? Or.....?

not the valium
I suppose I could relate to that valium haiku except that I have a negative reaction to Valium so much so that my blood pressure drops to the point where I fall unconscious. Heehe ... sorry I can't relate ...hmmm maybe I could write a haiku about cannabis...
