Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

It's heartrending to feel powerless when a loved one is in trouble.
One more toke, one more smoke, one more line

Until there’s no more

Until it’s never enough

Until you’re no more

than a blind, deaf and dumb walking shell of yourself

who slowly drives

or pushes everyone who’s ever cared about you away

Until it’s just you, a needle, a straw, and your loved ones’ heartache

because there is absolutely nothing they can do for you

because it seems you’d rather die than let anyone help.
