you are my fever dreamMature

You are my fever dream.
You set in, you suck me down,
you do not let go even though
I am thrashing and kicking and
screaming into the cold, dead
night air.  You are all around me,
soaking me through to the bones;
I shiver, I quake, I feel like I’m burning 
alive with the heat of your flames.
The drugs do not scare you
from my bones though I swallow them
down and down and down and down;
you just pull me under anyway.

The End
