I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please :) ). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.

Every fortnight we hope to host a photograph suggested by contributors. So, keep those photograph recommendations coming. Submit your favourite images (with credit) for next week’s Picture it & write!

How could a myriad of obscure chemicals compressed into capsules solve my problems? I’m sure if even some snob academic lectured me on chemistry and pharmacotherapy, I wouldn’t understand. It didn’t matter. I had pills for depression, pills for anxiety, pills to sleep. Was there a pill to stop taking pills? My stomach gurgled and I looked outside the living room table. I couldn’t dare look at the chemicals weapons I had just consumed, warfare ensuing within me. Would they make it all better? My cheeks were wet. When had I stopped taking the best drug of all? The drug that would make me happy, carefree, and let me sleep at night. A drug where I would have to take no other. Why did I stop feasting on life?
