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.

Written by absinthe
It is not so uncommon these days sitting on the balcony eyes darting from the cup on the table to the woven patterns on the wall, the floorboards and the straight lines from these to the corner to the wooden sticks behind the beams of the roof, while my mind wrestles with fluttering wings of moth, leaving a powdery trail of silver and a bit of gold, and when the moth has gone I am left with fruit that feels heavily of a familiar sadness that comes and goes, from here to there, to somewhere across the garden, perhaps in the woods where a pig goes rooting, and that distance from here to there,...

Can't wait to be staple-free
Actually can't remember the last time I wasn't on opiates
Not that it matters
That was text book passive aggressive

Swaying sitting still
Taking another pill or 3 or 4
Amateur hour
No whining
Double down

Must be Monday
Yesterday was so not my fun day
Super suck day
Everything is fuzzy
Loosely based on real life
Fuck today, tomorrow is already on the way

I like how it looks in hallucination land

Never know what you might draw or write
When you're FUCKING drunk and pretty high

Till you're fucking drunk and way past high

I took a stroll with death
staggered and stumbled,
at times death let go of
me, letting me fall on the
cold, wet ground

As I lay there my head
was spinning, the voices
mumbled and laughed
but death was still there,
waiting for my soul, all
I could say was, you're
hurting me

Death didn't care, it hovered
over me and kicked me
while I was down, it
snickered and poured
me another shot, turned
me over and passed it
through my lips, I could
see it, death, at the
bottom of the bottle

I wanted to Marry juanna
girl of dreams
we kissed and we fought
till we were on our knees
she was my heart of hearts
and when I saw her with another guy it made me turn Green
with envy but I should have seen it coming
cuz she never stayed long
she started pulling away from me and it didn't take long
she was my heart of heart
my dream girl of bliss
when I was with her I was at my craziest
and when she left me I felt so alone
so betrayed by her
it was like a cloud of smoking tried to snuff out my life
my friends took me...

I sicken me
The feeling of power you get when u hold a fire arm
Presing the needle against my skin working up
The balls to push it in
I sicken me
Sitting in the woods resting up against a 350 year old
Fir tree pondering all the hate and suffering
That lives within me should i toss this rope up into the tree
And leave all this bulshit behind will my family miss me
I sicken me
The blood shoots into the end of my one mil syringe telling me
I have hit my mark i love this feeling and it sickens me
Sitting at the base of this mossy...

DU Poetry : Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Poems

Published on 15th August 2014 4:30pm
Written by Valley
The sun boils you as you walk the ground,
as you walk, your mind weary, as you near falling down.
Luckily, you stay a foot and continue to walk.
The only shade around is a product of the smallest rock.
Then bugs start to swarm, closer to you,
they start biting away at your shoe.
They crawl up your leg but you don't see,
oddly enough they don't see me.
They crawl into your skin, many of bugs.
I was frightened so I threw our last few water jugs.
The bugs climbed up up to your head.
I was sure you were dead.
Unfortunately, you weren't dead yet,...

Sitting in the night, takin in the coolness of it,
lookin out the window at all passing by, wishing I was twelve again,
Sitting in, reflecting on work, love and life, the bloody toll of it all,
Aint it fun when you know your gonna die young,
The phone rings, a friend, a family member,
calling to check in on you,
Making certain your alive,
making certain you haven’t literally choked anyone
Not an I Love You, not at first, but in closing afterwards, an act of kindness
Not even a courtesy, did you drink any today...

White pill
Meant to make me heal
Fix me

Save me from myself
Release me

But with every twinge,
Every clench
Every stab of pain in my belly

I feel like it's slowly
Killing me

Starting with my kidneys.

Just with 450 mg daily.

Oh joy.

Written by apocalyptic high grapesoftime
I awake in a dream
like technicolor and hazy smoke
like fucking a velvet couch
and the water's rising
laid back on burning rocks
and electrifying flow of the river
I laugh as I drown a child
helpless and trapped
but not screaming
not moving
not anymore
I rise to stand
my body moves in shifts of five
repeating the action
again and again as I stumble
dreadlocks writhing in delirium
the vodka's hot now
the sun distilling it
to the sharp bite of rubbing alcohol
the burn suits me more now
and I dunk my hair into the...

A ngels play pipes in praise, Gloria Patri!

A flower of peace has been given unto you.

I've lost so many
memories and nights to the bottle
that I'm beginning to feel
just as empty and useless
as the last one
I broke down on the floor.
I can't remember my waking
hours spent walking
testing my limits
to the point where I can't help
but poison myself,
questioning my luck and my faith;
why am I so protected,
why do the Saints save me
from the consequences
of my actions,
or do they merely consider
my shame sufficient enough?
My friends have seen me
at my worst and lowest,
yet I...

Written by ThyHoneynut
For a while, I thought I had my life in order,
The will for my life, turned into a mental disorder,
The world turned me into an emotional hoarder,
And I gave into my greed as my spirit became sorer,
Because I blamed God for being financially bordered,
And time became longer as my potential became shorter,
'Cause there's a demon with a threshold who loves to loiter,
Now you see me kneeling at the cross alone in the foyer,
I'm in the court of spiritual warfare, but who's the lawyer?
I'm sick of all the pain, I'm through with all the horrors,
This is a...
