Quetiapine~by Samantha Gray

I wrote this a few years ago when I was on the anti depressant drug Quetiapine.




the chemical exorcist
rids you of your demons
it’s true
but it annihilates your
angels too.
You take it,
then it takes you.
wields its
undiscriminating scythe
upon the garden
of the mind
for it cannot see
or know
what is weed
and what is rose.
It’s a catastrophic reaping
by the blind.
A void’s left behind,
when gone the joy
gone the weeping,
gone human feeling
and all meaning.
