Harassing poison needle
Shooting morphine
Die out so a clean star can be born

Long gone are Ozzie and Harriet
Took their ride on Heaven's Chariot
But left behind in sake of name
Ozzie Osbourne to play this game.

If that is what it takes to be a star, I'm content with just being me. Powerful write.

I don't find him that bright anyway

Had morphine once in the war and it served its purpose well to releave
the pain I was inflicted with.

...a shooting star earthbound burning out brilliant
or earthtrapped and reaching high...whichever way, the end comes.
"When I'm high," I heard a heroin addict say one time, "it's perfect 'cause I'm wrapped from head to toe in cotton wool."

Well put, Sage.

I would think being free from the inner pain causing the need for morphine would transform anyone into shine and sparkle and want to continue on, interesting...

Be always safe,

Drugs are for mugs, as we know, but some see a dangerous glamour in them; only bulls in the field should snort. You capture the 'dark star' in a few succint words, sage.

Oh that word morphine. I had enough in me to kill a whale. Something taken so lightly will cause a reborn.

Reviewed by Dayvid Graybill 8/17/2010
Sometimes I want death to pay a visit too. But then I think about the possibility of transformation. Damn! I'm such a naive sob! Death does bring new life...the most marvelous act of nature!

Peace and shooting stars,
