The Rest of the Time

The problem is, you cannot rescue someone who is addicted to drugs. You can lecture them, to no point, and plead with them, to no avail, but essentially an outsider is powerless over someone else’s addiction. No doubt about it, drugs do make him feel good. It’s just that they make him feel bad all the rest of the time.

Roger Ebert

The rest of
The time ain’t
So much fun
After the party
Is done
Vampires
Whither
In the sun

My friends are
So lively and so free
We’re just who
We wanted
To be

Ain’t nothing
Will ever explain
The nuisance
That nibbles
My brain
My world
Will never
Be sane

My friends are
So lively and so free
We’re just who
We wanted
To be
