By The Light Of The Full Moon
A Poem by Jim Nasium

Up all night thinking that I might
make it through one more day
no need for my meds or to stay in bed
everything seems to be going my way
it won't be too long I will hear the song
of The Siren singing come back soon
I sit up and pray for first light of day
by the light of the full moon

Dawns light in my face out back of my place
the dew's sparkling on the ground
birds are singing in trees for me
there is no one else is around
I make my way one step at a time
easy does it or so they say
the only way you can keep it
is if you give it away

An early morning breakfast meeting
twelve steps to freedom they say
the food was bad and the people sad
I really didn't want to stay
said goodbye and with a tear in my eye
I left feeling so all alone
took a stand and made a plan
fired up a big fat bone

What a bunch of crap they feed ya
when you sit in them smokey rooms
gagging on silly sob stories
and stale second hand cigarette fumes
everyone's got the worse problem
they each need help more than any one
I stand there and cry and can't understand why
getting high used to be so much fun

It's all too much I need the gentle touch
of sister Morphine to take over
then I can day dream a lovely scene
alone laying in four leaf clover
no reason to cry or explain why
I do the things I don't want to do
alone in this place I can see your face
you're not happy with me are you

The sun's high in the sky and so am I
I have no place I need to go
another day lost but at what a cost
time passes so very slow
the meds they said are good for my head
they will help me to relax
I can't help my self and it's bad for my health
but I'm only stating the facts

When the sun goes down with out a sound
I'm lost in another dimension
the things that I see are only for me
some of them I just can't mention
time passes by and I am so high
things are as they should be
stuck in this place trying to save face
but at least my spirit is free

Up all night thinking that I might
make it through one more day
but I take some meds and go to bed
everything seems to be going the wrong way
it's loud in my ear and I can still hear
The Siren singing come back again soon
I sit up and pray for first light of day
by the light of the full moon...
