The needle exchange program.

Lingering agitated survivors,
Feeding off the misguided sense of irony,
Paraphrasing each word,
Passage for passage,
Moving forward,
Stuck in time,
Sleeves that hide,
The stitches of the survivor’s guide,
For it was,
The fix we needed,
Provided with a needless smile,
Delinquent paraphernalia,
Formed from the needle that guides,
Compass of our lives,
Had failed us,
Deviated us from the path,
That deceived us,
Longing for the numbing melodies,
Provides the necessity amenities,
Misguided sense of the moral compass,
Keeps breeding the fix,
As it smoothly deceives us,
Navigating a circle of life,
Shielding us from a society that shunned us.

I failed to learn the piano, so I decided I’d play the keyboard instead. //All aboard the Crazytrain.
