Chasing The Dragon
Author: Pixi


chasing the dragon
steals your soul away.
you can't function without it
'cause then you feel the numbness and pain.

at first it was fun,
quite a rush.
now all you feel
is empty and cold.

now it isn't fun anymore;
if you don't catch the dragon
you're body,mind and spirit
begins to withdraw

some people die and some get help
but now those left have to build a new life
while realising that chasing the dragon
robbed us of a wholesome life.
