This is an image I made to go with a poem I wrote some years ago
I love to make images to fit my poems at last I hope I can get across
more feeling with words and pictures.

Prescribed Addiction

Kind words he spoke to me,
As he handed me the latin words,
written on crisp white paper.
One to be taken three times a day.
Magic bullets in a plastic jar
To cheer my desperate day.
And the days were so bright.
Before the dark night
Prescribed addiction.

thanks charlene for a return visit, I am guilty of taking pictures off soon after I have uploaded them, I often see something not right and I often panic and think they are not good enough

Excellent work MAUREEN. This image expresses your poem perfectly. There is certainly a lesson to be learned here.
One of your very best.

Great manipulation Maureen with a heck of a lot to take in. Fits your poem well too. Think you need to get an e2 membership so we can appreciate your work in larger version.

Very tense and dark.Life is no life at all when it's full of the pain of addiction.

This hits home to a my recent loved one...powerful enough to take my sympathy even deeper to the balcony of woe for what addictions have caused her new nomadic compass. This is very hard to view for me right now, but so very true..and amazes also that I am not the one with the magic bullets prescribed or taken....but have been hitSad Thanks for sharing this very artery of an image with us.
