"Silent screams ...

Dear me! I wrote this minutes after I experienced heroin withdrawal for the first time. Collapsed with stomach cramps halfway down the red oxide staircase that isn't there any more.

Silent screams for a virgin's kiss
For a few hours of euphoric bliss
My daily dose of bitter happiness.
