Heroin is an insidious destroyer of souls. It comes on with good dreams and euphoria. There's little else like the soft warm waves that surge through your body. Like long lost secret memories from a cool heavenly death ,,, Life's worries and cares are over ... solved in an instant! But if you fuck with it too often it robs you of ALL your dreams. All the pleasures that life has allotted you are used up like sands that run out from an hour glass. It leaves you with only the desire to have IT again and again. That, and the frozen pain when you can't get it. It takes from you everything that that you thought justified your existence. You end up existing only for it ... as its slave. You will become SICK, STUPID and SEXLESS.

Perhaps you think that you can take it with impunity. I have NEVER met such a person. Take it just once and it will change you. It is a devil that is older than man and is more evil than any man can comprehend. It is only a chemical ... as are we all.

This composition is a diary of what was going on in my life while I painted it.
