Opium Dream

Updated on March 11, 2011

A shooting star in the sky

the silence within a cry

Ocean's tide that ebbs and flows

a fear that forever grows

blessed curse or deathly hallow

i am the pill you can't swallow

the cure for your disease..

last wish of the deceased

flowing sand in hour-glass

changing shapes that dont last

a fading memory of your past

the burning fire in a cold wind

or hardened walls of a kiln

i am the lending hand

i am the victim's plea

the end to your plague

the cage that sets you free

a believer's unremitting faith

or a madman's opium dream

the right of wrong, the left of right

or somewhere in between..
