too desperate

Help! “I can no longer differentiate”
(I do) anything to improve my state
It is important, so I’m told to switch
But yet, nothing happens as ‘I wish’

I’m off-track, blind to trivial matters
For every issue, I’m forced to scatter
Paused. I’m under an inmate despair
Which leads me, leads to an ensnare

Another night in these self-same bars
‘Glass after glass’ ‘from rays to stars’
Eyeing an exchange for (accompany)
“I’ve been watching TV for company”

If you understand what’s happening
Do explain it, to prevent my opening
The sign says laugh but I’m clapping
To a poisoning of a dawn awakening
