Flying Blind

Missing in action, marked
by defective compass -
absent medications
dissolve his directions.

Magnetic arrow points
to twisted perceptions
Blindly navigating,
hurricane confusion,
he's high on delusion,
thinks his conscience intact.

Absence of his conscience
freedom - insanity.
Medications reveal
limit of directions,
compass calibrations,
labored navigation,

altering the compass


Chemical Abandon
