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.

We pour a round, we roll a spliff
and everything is great
'til bottles suddenly appear
and someome gets a plate
The other day my loneliness
it seemed would never end
'Til I went and got a few supplies
and found myself some friends
The ringing's getting louder now
my mind completely numb
The music's getting louder, too
and things are getting dumb
And by the time the night was up
there was no secrets left
It was a great experience
but now I feel like death
Vodka, Valium, vicodin
morphine and Mary Jane...

The law doesn't need
A Crystal Ball
to watch over you
or find out what you
done or could be doing
oh hell no the law has
got better than that
the law has Rats
who tells them all they
know and can find out

How much do your habits cost you
how much does it cost you
to support your habits
habits do cost know
and habits does get out of hand
sometimes even out of sight
yes what does your habits cost you
do you ever add your habits up
or analize your situation
that is entirely your own creation

Questioning my resolve for replicating mundane, societies views transposed, but the infection the same.
Undoubtedly fabricated is my purpose to survive, purging my soul daily just to feel alive.
Steel stimulates receptors within, pillaged & plundered and miserably chagrin.
Defiantly resolving to persist in chaotic existence, exhausted with feeblemindedness yet I remain balanced on the fence.
Convincing myself the metamorphosis of my futurity is tomorrow, focusing on illusion what instant is no longer borrowed

Trying to keep it light,
when my world is so dense
I thought I'd cracked the code
but it still don't make sense
I'm destroying my life
with the power of prophesy
I feel so detached
like my soul has neuropathy
Was so absorbed in darkness
that I lost track of the light
Til one day Mary picked me up
and left me dead to writes
I wallowed in my own despair
and viewed the world as shit
She helped me pick the pieces up
and somehow make them fit
And now sometimes it blows my mind
because the wind is high
and when the...

Now I know what's it's like to lose a best friend,
It was the heroin we both dabbled in that ended him,
he was so close to graduation,
On track for a massive congratulations,
He could have overcome every obstacle that faced him,
But a fascination with the most dangerous escape meant damnation,
It started as recreation and ended with a premature grave,
Why is it that we made the same mistake but he had to pay,
We both knew the price of pain associated with greatness,
A constant fight against complacence,
I remember it seemed so innocent, ...

DU Poetry : Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Poems

Published on 22nd April 2015 5:35pm
Written by thelovepoet
Humans are born with blank slates
therefore humans are born
to becomme addicts is possible
when a human becomes an addict
they should not feel bad about it
no not at all face the facts
after all you are a human being
learn how to control your adiction
then there's a chance it will be
up to you to do what you want to do

A lot of people I see like to be
in Zanax Heaven
they like to be way up there
where one is so high
one can't doanythihg
so high they can't move
so high they don't want to move
you're getting high there baby
when you can't walk
when you can't talk to anyone
when you don't know
where or who you are anymore
this trip I have described to you
is in Zanax Heaven
go see a medical doctor
he will give you a ticket

Written by Str8toHe11

I live in Vancouver's notorious downtown Eastside.
Where all hope is lost and not one ounce of pride.
What the junkies steal to survive the patrons swallow like a warm flowing tide.
What little money gets passed cause they get ripped off
It's what they do to survive and survive all costs
The blood money gets past to the closest dealer at hand.
This dealer sells them their poison usually to feed his own hand
The money continues far up the drug line
To the next scumbag dealer only selling for dime
He shells out this poison to have his fat stacks and...

Caught in a web
of my own despair
hitting it hard
booze, drugs
acting like a fool
my actions reflected
in others eyes
burns like acid
on my tender heart
demons chasing me
deep into the night
mocking my dope fiend ways
waking up in a cold sweat
shaking grateful it only a night terror
though is it?
or is just a mirror to my day to day life
one that is hidden from me
in my intoxicated haze
I want to shake my habits
though I am weak of will
cocaine thoughts echo in my head

The feeling of numbness when I hit the bowl

The feeling of numbness
And having no soul

I used to worry and care everyday

Now that I'm stoned
The feelings wash away

I feel like deep down I might care
But until that moment
I will not be there

I'm not in this moment.
I'm not in the now.

You said I don't care
You're correct
Take a bow

A common misconception is drugs play tricks on the mind
Sometimes it's drugs that expose the mind's tricks
It's greatest deception is that of one's own mortality
Always present upon this thought is striking sadness
But horror is the true emotion yearning to escape
The evolutionary defense barrier blocking this hell
For the very core of functionality is dependent
But if this barrier is ever removed, even temporarily
You once again feel all the emotions of losing a loved one
Only this time it's you that is lying in the casket
