Drug of Choice

by Alisa Js

Tell me why didn’t you hold back
When building that pretense
That took so long, so painstakingly long
To span between the truth and a lie
Historic preportions and I bought every bite
Yet, none of it real
All in a dream
Captured by some psychotic delusion
Of hypnotic enchantment
It was great while it lasted
But we all have to wake up someday
It was that day, my eyes opened
And on this day, my dreams died …

Drug of choice
Words on a page, voice on the telephone
Are handy when you haven’t a soul
Or a real heart to share
A life to enjoy
And I’m back to wondering
Why the hell did I not see that coming
What kind of fool am I?

One who believes like a little girl
One who couldn’t deny
The chance for a lifetime of happiness
To see all my dreams come true
Too bad it was based on a myth
Too bad it was nothing but fable,
Next time, I’ll read Aesop instead
Next time, I’ll get up from the table …
