The Pills

In this Dystopia

we have gradually become transparent 

to the passage of time

learning to be patient

as we surrendered to how small we are.

In this Dystopia

We escaped the mental asylum by accident

abruptly coming down from the drugs 

as we noticed the spring flowers come up slower than ever.

Time became a friend

prodding us to reconsider our position

until we found the strength

to let go of the crave

as it dawned upon us

that happiness had been a trap,

it was just the pills talking

and that this was never a dystopia after all
