Drugs Poems

Poetry about drug use and addiction (alcohol, medication and recreational drugs)

This section is for poems about drug use, addiction and side effects, along with poetry describing experiences on drugs. This includes alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs like cocaine, cannabis, meth, and heroin. It also covers poetry about medical prescription drugs like Valium, Ritalin, Prozac and other anti-depressants. In fact, poems written about any mind altering chemical can be found here. The "drugs poems" category contains writing by recreational drug and alcohol users, and people who have had significant experiences with drugs through medical treatment. It also includes poems written by those who have observed drug use first hand, from being around users or addicts. There will be poems here presenting opinions both for and against drug use, they are the views of individual poets and not the Deep Underground Poetry website.

How many white lies will it take
to brighten these blacked out nights?
If I tell myself that I'll never
pick up another drink,
those are loose change words
and my actions have always
spoken louder
than the coins in my jeans,
so I can't trust myself
with such a faded promise;
looks like I'm doomed
to live a life full of liqour lights.
I think that deep down
I'm a good man,
but I end up being
much worse when I wake up
at 6 a.m in the hallway
still half lit from the bar;
I always...

Dear Pills,
Please do not take offense
To my persistent proscription of your prescription.
You are simple sertraline hydrochloride soldiers
Following the doctor’s orders
To desolate the country of my cognizance,
To storm the castle where Depression waits—
A sad senile sapient so past his days,
His youth stolen by your fifty mages—
And bow him past perception.
I apologize for your amaranthine lack of acceptance,
But I remember when Depression
Was a king
Inside his castle,
Blade gleaming bright ...

In strange fields
Their minds run free,
Passed the border, passed sanity?
Lost in secrets, trapped, alone,
Their thoughts, their dreams, allowed to roam,
Inside their heads, in tiny ships
There’s laughter and tears,
And pleasure trips,
Outside it’s cold
In here it’s warm,
In here you’re safe
From the human storm,
Corridors, so clean and neat,
Emotions wrapped in starched white sheets,
Eyes that hold a thousand tears
Words so quiet, no one hears,
Your trees seem fruitless,
Dead, no yield,

How and where ZANAX comes from and came
into the main stream of society
back during the late 60s and all during the 70s
the CIA drug machine was pouring the PCP into
the streets of the big cities...which then traveled
to the smaller towns and cities as fast as it could
flow...pushers and users named this drug PCP
Angel Dust...THC...actually PCP is a hog tranquilizer
butchers use the drug to keep animals from squealing
when they are slaughtered and making all that racket
when the cocaine craze hit America...which the CIA

There have been lots of people
exactly like you and me
who took them a pill or two
then started feeling so good
they thought this feels nice
to be high...I think I will
take me another pill or two
I want to get a little higher
I want to find out how good
it will feel...this is when
they visit the pearly gates

So, they found you lying on the bathroom floor
You'd invited death and locked the door
The blame's on me
it's all my fault
Your face was blue
your intentions untold
a kiss goodbye would be your last word
Your eyes staring beyond the space
A needle still atached to your skin
people wondering of where you have been
It's been a few hours that you've entirely gone
Half naked,
slow throbbing heart
So sad,
quiet and blank
maybe it was fear drawn on your face

LIVING DEAD a mother's slant
A head of silky golden curls I
Twirled around my fingers while you slept
And dreamt of dragon tales and butterflies
A Mothers heart swelled large with Love
Smiled down on you from above
And prayed the best would be your lot
But you have gone and in your place
An empty headed cold dark space
You chose a different track
Crack the name of your adventure
Cold the places that you go
You fell through its icy crevice
Now there's nowhere but below

Constant bandage on my wound
It never seems to heal .
That empty spot that's craving love and answers knows the pain is real.
The substance that took you away and controlled you like a puppet is what I Hate the most .
You've morphed into an apparition , a lonely, miserable ghost.
I've seen you at your weakest when your mind wasn't clear.
When the sirens were the only thing I could loudly hear .
The cold, silver doors were my favorite place to be .  
Even though I could only place my hand on top of yours through a glass
I would do anything to see you...

Comfort feels alien
Ian lost from that place
I hold my heart
But not in body
My thoughts spin out to space
I cry God
Sing him loud
And I find my breathe like a breeze
I surrender to God
Give him self will
And all fear
Soon I know I find peace

When a substance has the potential
to harm you in 92 different ways
it is bound to get to you
a human being cannot beat the odds
of one hundred to one no way
Aspartame is the name and it is
as sweet as sweet can be
and absolutely poisonous also
you were aware of this weren't you
so remember don't let a sweet tooth
get you killed...Aspartame surely will

Women who drink and sex
It was in Livorno and it was a cold January night when I met her
in a bar- where else does one meet women, in the salvation army?
What she was doing in Livorno beats me as she was an American
woman far from home, I was there waiting for my ship to come in.
We were both drinkers and felt empathy for one another and when
the bar closed she came to my hotel. In the morning, I had a shower,
she was still asleep  woke and asked what I was doing in her room
I told her it was my hotel room she cried; worked for the consulate.

The Sober Woman
Years ago a day in June I had a new girlfriend but she was
drinking heavily;  since I didn’t at the time she stopped too
June is beautiful month in the Algarve, green and pleasant,
an ocean of wild- flowers and a lush countryside.
We didn’t live together my house is small I like to be alone
during the day. She rang suggested we go swim in the lake.
She, a strong swimmer I less so swam a metre from shore.  
Two days sober and she was crossing the lake got a fit and sank.
Sometimes we are tested and braver are than we think....

Such a dreamer I became
Me on a couch and both in frame
This awfull parody makes me sad
but I won't cry no matter what
I am laughing
I am insane
I am drowning
I am in pain
"Live fast,die young", or don't
I don't care
The sky is black, the world is unfair
Want to rather burn than live?
So big misfortune my Gods give
The mirror speaks to me and lie
I need all comfort I can buy
on 8-hour basis and then tear apart
with an angel of death as bodyguard
I'm still waiting for my luck to turn
and as I wait my...

Ecstacy is simple, easy to discover
always ready am I to find you.

Your scent, a thrill to the senses
Your heart, still hidden. Mine, broken.

Relax in my paradise fantasy,
seek pleasures. Taste my freedom.

the beat of that repetitive awesome
pulsating warmth, afterglow far away still.

Lovely to feel this way, no believe me.
This is what I like, a feeling. Stays with me.

Similarly is love and happiness.
Interlink eternal, bond, burden.

Seek with me that afterglow, to share..

I wake
A drowsy half sleep
The need to leave
Train these toes to creep

Opening doors
With rusting keys
Feeling each move
From bleeding knees

The drones of bones
Plasma soaked
The skin's been leaking

Thin these walls
Through muted bickering
I see only half
In this darkened flickering.
