"Legal Highs"

Mental Health

In my minds eye; life would be bliss.

But not for  this new generation of "legal highs".

My lost mind: could I heal it with a kiss?

Todays lost generation can they but sigh!

Oh! they wished they had avoided and given it a miss.

To regain my mind and not become a lie.

Higher and higher it's enveloping grasp and into the abyss.

All consuming need, pain, God do I die?

The compulsion of addiction I desperately try to dismiss.

There is no pain, it's so much worse; I'll say bye!

Cravings for highs, higher than high; so much amiss.

Caressing the hurt, causing pain, will it pass?
