I'm by the window on the 5th floor
the view can only be described
as average
the clouds were in my head before
now they glide above the
hard stone bridge
observed from the window floor
alongside a placebo pill
and a bevarage.
Waiting for you
financial insecurity
need not be the end,
we
need to go back and uncover
the skills thought lost forever
and learn to reuse them

the bartering system
more than just
and justly fair.

instead
we get ten pounds sterling
off a meal for the evening

God help us all.
A gift from the chancellor or a curse?
Peter B Mar 2019
They hold me tight,
they kiss my lips,
my eyes.

When it's time to wake up
they say: "Don't worry,
stay in bed.
Keep dreaming,
keep dreaming,
don't let anyone wake you up."
Inspired by song  Sleeping With Ghosts by Placebo

How do I know if it's love?
Does a simple moment take control of my mind
Focusing on the sweetest words I heard you say
Grasping at the tendrils of a beautiful future

How do you know that it's love?
Does calling my name cause your heart to stop
Staring into my soul makes you lose yourself
To a sea of vibrant words and passionate eyes

How do we know that it's love?
Do we veil reality with a beautifully woven cloth
Whispering from our honey coated lips
Shivering from a sweetness convinced it's nothing but pure

He was
Later found to be
A Placebo

Still
She’s addicted
To

Her trust
is keeping
hold

Calm
Euphoric
Dreamy, She was

After all.

Painted characters  
Adding life to it  
Scarlet imaginations  
White, Black, Blue  
Missing the object,  
While grasping it’s shadow  
Illusion of hope,  
Nothing of what seems, everything  
Complicated questions,  
Answers within  
Seeking the peace,
With loaded weapon  
A placebo effect,  
Of reason and faith  
Thinking, obstacle is the path  
Effort to undress, a naked man  
Remedies worsen than the illness  

Doubting everything,  
In the zero hour  
Doubting everything,  
Way to find a truth
  
Emptiness is a new fullness.

Pretended to be medicine,
proven to be placebo....
But the healing occurred,
Let it go....
