Smiley Plant, Poetry by Sharky

Hey you, you’re acting a little weird.

You know you’ve got Mary Jane at the palm of your hands?

Controlling you so.

But You’ve got a certain smile that I haven’t witnessed in awhile.

Mind you if I try your smiley plant?

Genre: Peer Pressure and Curiosity.

Smiley Plant
by Sharky

Hey you, you’re acting a little weird.

You know you’ve got Mary Jane at the palm of your hands?

Controlling you so.

But You’ve got a certain smile that I haven’t witnessed in awhile.

Mind you if I try your smiley plant?

I’ve heard her be called a blanket.

Is it like a cocoon?

Protecting you while you become stronger?

How do you get out of it

and when do you know you’re ready.

I’ve seen people never drag themselves out of that land.

That tell me of the magical land while you’re on it.

It’s like a ticket to a land of bliss.

But I guess that’s why some people hate it.

Some people hate feeling truly happy.

I’m forgetting little details

I’m forgetting more than I feel like I should.

Why does it not seem important to remember that person’s name?

The pain in my heart

The emptiness that feels like it’s crawling, tearing, coming out of me

Ripping me apart.

It feels less brutal like this.

Hey, you’re acting a little weird.

You’ve got a smile I have witnessed in a while now.

Can I try some of that smiley stuff?

Does she make you feel like you’re being whisked away?

Does she feel like it’s protecting you from the past and present.

Do you feel like it’s torturing your future?

Cracking the whips at all of your plans

Making you alter the course of your steps.

Do you ever regret taking that first little blow

or do you regret the actions following it?

Hey Mary Jane, you know you’ve ruined my life?

Taking that first little puff, taking that first blow

Altered all my future sayings.

Hey you, you’re acting a little weird.

You know you’ve got Mary Jane at the palm of your hands?

Controlling you so

But You’ve got a certain smile that I haven’t witnessed in awhile.

Mind you if I try your smiley plant?
