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.

pent up in my mind….for way too long
pleasures of the world
learning along the way
I’m a hedonist
with more than meets the eye
with something to say
-clubbing/poppy music?-
we’re seeing all the secrets
I’m feeling all the regrets
different shades of wisdom
the auras aren't shadows... anymore
knowledge is so fucking colorful
rainbows in my mind
dancing devils on my brain
heart beats speeding up
heart beats slowing down
we move to the beat, of nature’s sound
we’re jagged puzzle...

Each time
I fill a prescription
The bottle is empty
Three weeks
Before the refill date.
How many
Of those little fuckers
Did I really take?

Each time
I cash my check
The money
Was it even
Really here?

Each time
I close my eyes
The minute
Is filled with
It doesn't even
Come as a surprise.

A moment of epiphany when one realizes they have healed back to healthy. Not requiring medicine any longer because it has already done its wonderful job. The wound has healed over into something more solid. The demons of childhood laid to rest by having lost their power. The people you once fought with have grown their own way into forgiveness and a fate reflective of their karma. “You saved my body when my soul died in the deepest states of grieving, in the loneliest times allowed me to smile even when no one cared if I was breathing.” Then you emerge Phoenix out of flame. “ I am well and no...

He's younger than me
Got no teeth
And now I'm having nigtmares
About gummybear mouths
He used to sleep on my couch
Before his girlfriend got an abortion
And the three of us
Couldn't stand upright
With laughter
The time my flat
Turned into a swimming pool
He read the dictionary
And I read the thesaurus
We played games designed
For the odd one out
Before innocent stupidity grew up
I'm $300 dollars poorer
Money no foetus will see;
We kept telling ourselves
She was too young
Just too young

It's an ancient science.
Easy equations.
The amount they sell
is formatted to drain
your finances slowly.
And the drug itself numbs you
enough so you can't
comprehend consequence.
It controls the basics-
Dealers giving you the good shit
to start,and once they know
they have you hooked,
they get sloppy with the product.
The amount,the quality,ect...
Once you become a regular
the sellers perform unintentional
power trips.
Subconscious acts...

Addict in the family

There's a coke head in my family
She was going to be a model
Such a pretty face
Now ruined by the toxic
So have you not heard the screaming and the crying of children, echoing throughout the walls
When she strikes, she's bringing everyone down!
Determined to use her clenched fist and she didn't care WHO! got in the way
I wonder what the neighbours thought
Hearing the screaming and shouting
My childhood home is not a home
More like a house full of unwanted kids and disturbing memories
We will be and always be the...

He swaggers into the pub pushes his way up to the bar
Waves a fifty in his fist, ‘here yer are mate, here yer are.’
Barman rushes up to serve drug dealer Willie Burn
Fellow stood beside him says ‘wait yer bloody turn’
Burn stops and looks at him asks ‘who the hell are you?’
‘I’m the guy before yer so you can go and screw’
‘Do you know just who I am mate? I rule the roost round here
So just say yes sir three bags full an’ I’ll let yer buy my beer’
‘I can make one phone call and you’ll have broken legs’
The man knows...

Life to you is like a herion rush,then you vomit and it's over.You want to die,
you don't care cause you're so high.
You start to cry and prey to your lord...
Oh why?
You start to shake and quiver,
and feel enormous pain in your liver.
You start to think this is the end,
but the rush has just started to begin.
As your soul is being taken,
you shake constantly and you quiver more.
Then you see the light flashing,
bright at your door.
You grab a sharp object and run it through your heart.
And your soul has no choice but...

DU Poetry : Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Poems

Published on 21st April 2014 2:09am
Written by VictoriaAlice VicBathurst
Death is a frequent thought that passes through my mind
Like wind shaking a tree, it rattles through my being
When I do think of it,
It's not always the dark moments when the world is coated in black
And my mind is too fragile to do anything but sleep,
It's not only in those moment
Sometimes when I'm in a car
Looking out the window watching the world pass by
Or late at night
When I'm trying to convince my brain to go to sleep
As I wrap myself tightly in the covers
There's only one moment
That I remember clearly
That I did...

Today I discovered chocolate
Is not a food group
Nor is it a metaphor
For endorphins running riots
Through my brain

It is the taste of loneliness
And a vice for the good little addict
Who's stopped getting into the good stuff
For the sake of sanity

Shut off phone
Leave me the fuck alone

Nice new clean crisp sheets
Going to feel super nice of the legs and feets

Steaming hot shower
Lasting roughly a half hour

Silk nightgown
Easier to move around

Plenty of cigarettes
Can't have any of those "fuck me I ran out" upsets

A good movie
Background noise for when I get a woozy

Little wooden pill box containing
A weeks worth of reasons why I won't be abstaining

The only thing left to say
See you Monday

I'll take the blackness every day
shudder as I collapse into the tunnel.
10 minutes of putrid fucking hell
and the 5 minutes of heavenly warmth.

Breathe life into me
bring me back from the outer plane

I escaped eternity.

Can you even imagine being knocked for every thought or idea that enters your mind?    
Maybe I'm losing my mind.  
I cannot see straight, straight lines.
The words, letters and sentences combine.  
A soft smoke, a deep inhale...
The dry, musky air, quiet and stale.
Am I losing my mind?
It only gets more difficult to cope,
I have no motivation or hope...
Maybe there's an easier getaway than dope...
I'm losing my mind.
Where is God? His tender touch, so sweet and kind.
I live face down, at the bottom of the Earth.

I think there is something beautiful in the act of losing my mind.
Firstly, for example, when I take drugs my mind alters. I want to dance, I want to get up, I want to talk, I want to shout, I want to feel things, I want to look at lights, I want to walk. Reality is invisible and my mind alters. My problems aren't there, my worries, my future, my memory ,my past  aren't there. My life isn't there. I only comprehend the present. Its like I can actually take the time to appreciate the colours of life, the actual art of conversation&communicating, the actual feelings without the thought,...

Your mind is my drug, your words the needle,
you feed my addiction its wicked and evil,
I lose myself when I hear your voice,
I’m a saint by birth but a sinner by choice,
your lips the syringe pressed to my ears the veins,
your breath on my neck it kills all my pain,
I’m always on edge as my skin quickly crawls,
whenever you’re gone and I’m having withdrawals,
you are my habit, you are my vice,
I can’t get enough. I’ll pay any price,
your thoughts get me high, mainline...

The last hour of the night is 4am.
If you can get to bed at this hour,
You can still consider yourself
Having “gone to bed last night”.
Even in summer this is so.
But once you hit 5am, it’s morning.
Sober people are starting their engines up outside.
Birds start complaining about the morning news.
You’re fucked then. Your schedule’s off now.
Falling asleep after 5am is just as bad
As nodding off at 8 or 9 or 10 in the morning.
You might as well stay up and smoke another joint
And finish another level on the game.
“No rest...
