Plastic Coated Promises

Awaiting the magic,
I take three chalky,
Somewhat bitter pills,
Swished away by bottled water,
Into my bloodstream,
Then the wait,
Kidding myself,
I feel something,
A tingle,
Could that be the start,
Pins and needles up my crossed legs,
Toe tapping,
Knee jerking,
Nerve enduced dance moves,
Sounds within,
Soul music,
Sold music,
Nothing,
Frustration is an emotion,
Not wanted, but invoked,
This routine of popping pills,
Daily,
Weekly,
Monthly,
Yearly,
Nothing,
I’m not trying to dance,
I’m just trying to live,
The plastic coated promises,
Pills prescribed by “experts”,
In what, not in me,
Tomorrow’s dalliance,
More of the same,
More waiting, hoping, hopping,
Plastic coated Promises.
