A poem about the ease of slipping into opiate addiction

My Addiction to Opiates Began so Innocently....

It was a pain in the neck, literally

a spinal surgery required

But then, the aftermath...I feel so numb on painkillers

and I confess I like the feeling

floating through the day, everything sliding by

Time a blur, as I sit cozy, high

And try as I might I don't ever want this to stop

This comfortable numbness has become my norm

My pain, not even gone, but who cares?

And the doc keeps refilling

My insurance keeps billing

No one checks up on what I am doing

or how I am feeling

So I just keep swallowing, every day, and claim hey, I still feel pain.

I need more
