“Try it, it can help,” she said,
as I nearly wept; as I
felt my mind slipping, again.
I couldn’t decide, but I took the stash;
small yellow pills with purported magic inside.

Valium Valhalla soothes my tensions,
releases my rejections, smoothes
self-proscribed head trips, reality trips,
and trips to the dark side of the moon.

Valium Valhalla flies within,
where dreams sink into bubble gum puddles,
sticky and sweet; round, though,
like a pink yellow sun, a ray of sun,
a ray of ego, a tomb of hope,
where today’s self-thought heroes go
to die and fledge their silly words.

Valium Valhalla, home of cowards,
and poets.

"Valium Valhalla"
The imagery here is up to date. A chemical “Peaceful time” – or a feeling – spiritual illusion. VALIUM: Tranquilizer. VALHALLA, same as ELYSIUM: Peaceful and Beautiful place in heavens.

Stimulating reading from a symbolic writing of poetic magnificence.

I have only had Valium twice. Once after I had seizures during a myelogram (10 mgs. IV)--I was out for four days. Once as a sedative during dental surgery. I was out for two days. NO MORE VALIUM FOR ME! I want those days back. :(

However, with this pinched nerve in me neck...I could use a dose right now LOL

I love the honesty and reality in this write--well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

I'm on baclofin. If that doesn't work, they recommend vallium.

And how many poets used opium, or peanut butter, or in my case, peanut butter cookies to get motivated? Many, I'm sure. (Just avoid the crunchy hard stuff!).

Not I. I can't conceive anyone writing ANYTHING coherently. Good luck getting off of that garbage if you haven't already.

For me it was Paxil as Valium did not touch me. But then I was always strange like that.
