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.

Shovel down another song
To play in gasoline.
Nothing ever goes too wrong
Construction paper dreams.

Falsities and broken notes
Left for the hollow masses.
Draining oil to stay afloat
golf club weekend passes.

He knows the way, so follow on
Until the Styx shall overflow
Unto a fairy tale's song
As above as so bellow.

Scissors aren't quite necessary
When the trees are fake.
Holidays now sanctuary
Leave the starving quaint.

I am no longer trapped in my head,      
My mind is now in the world around me.      
Looking down, I can see my arms breathe--      
Glowing clear energy flowing in and out      
Of them as I struggle to understand.      
I don't feel oneness with the universe,      
Just anxiety over my walls melting.      
I keep trying to make it to the      
Fridge to grab a beer but I always      
End up on the wrong side of the kitchen.      
I must of lost track of my movements and  ...

Bed undone,
slippers missing,
Sheets around the waist,
my weed under the base,
waiting for a blaze
but I gotta go to work,
Bong ready, grass baked,
water bubbles from the suck of air,
steam streaming up,
hi, who's up?
couple blows of smoke,
brain chill,
blurry views,
vision in the mist,
am I high yet?
Incoming calls, direct voicemail,
all by me but pot to blame,
2pm, no lunch to munch,
ringing door bells, no answer,
sky invitations,
cloud 9 accomodations
high greetings...hi how are you.

shattered crystals a wide arch
on crinkled clear paper
a skating rink on double circles
shooting clear in lemony tongue

freedom struggled behind her eyes
loving the air encircled in euphoria
seeing beyond the exploding galaxies
ice crushed and sparkled in second sights

I love you hold me don't leave me
hold me within in the honeycomb
in your brain plant me in your mind
she danced on within the ice storm

She stared out
a prisoner
of her desire
even as she craved freedom.

Consumed in soft, dark, inky blankness.
Covered with a comfortable wool blanket,
our only light is the television.
My entire body is heavy,
limp and relaxed.
Something inside me is screaming at me to get up and act
but I just don't feel like it.
I think I want to say something
yet my jaw remains slack.
I hold on to you tightly,
your cotton shirt warm and soft like your skin.
I never ever want to leave this moment that I'm in.
And so I let my eyes close,
warm and still.
I've not felt this safe and secure in years....

Frightening as it was,
She overdosed on drugs.
The needle still in her vein,
A bruise without its pain..

When the money's gone.

When the last bit gets pushed into your bloodstream.

When all support just cannot anymore.

I'm crawling out of my flesh

rolling tobacco in pages of the dictionary.

I wonder what kind of knowledge will spread from my lungs,

into this riot mind???

Feels so dreamy, breezy, making me sleepy

I'm swaying, mind playing and even praying

The room spins above, like a dove, in love

But then the heart breaks, 'twas fake, n I slowly wake

Just got home,
chilled to the bone.
I can't even see.
Why can't I just be alone,
why can't you let me be?
I guess I'll be up for a while anyway
because I'm far too tired to sleep.
I just wish you weren't here right now,
maybe then I'd have some peace
and quiet.
"Take these pills."
"Don't do that."
"Forget all about your friends."
Just conform to society's will
and you'll survive 'til the end.
Promises are often made to be broken
and so are guitar strings.
I can't even begin to tell you
how much I hate both those...

Sneaking out to smoke all night,
smoldering leaves burning bright,
It seems like I'm trying to compensate,
For something I don't have to demonstrate,
Nicotine and tobacco leaves,
Smoking till my throat is dry,
Deep down my soul believes,
That I' way to old to cry,
But now I see it's all the same,
Same as sucking on a pacifier,
As a child I'd cry and suck,
As a man, I smoke and suck it up,
It looks different but it's not,
Still sucking to make the pain subdue,
But nothing changes nothing's new,
All I know is I'm still a child,...

and avoiding work
in this bare bones
Concrete park (the city)
and smallness
Contentment resides here
But so does great loss
of years of potential greatness
and grandeur
but then there is still
.       .   .
I prayed for thee
Erotic ritual
You had vanished

As I exit the freeway and head downtown,
That recurring itch returns,
The type of itch only a syringe
Can scratch and my veins are restless,
Desperate for relief.
It’s an achy, “need to have it now”
Kind of feeling growing deep
Inside my chest,
Driving down familiar streets, passing
Empty parking lots and
Alleyways I swore I'd never revisit --
I feel nauseous.
Panicked butterflies are at war in my
Stomach, intrusive thoughts of
Relapse, are now
Clouding my better judgment.
Somehow I got lost,
Took a...

I hate being sober
Who the fuck wants to be sober?
I would rather mix a cocktail of artificial happiness
Than sit another second longer in complete sobriety
Watching the sun slowly fade and the world turn over
Wondering how much has truly slipped me by
Pick up the bottle again, sipping it long and slow
Turn up my Seether CD and let my spirit float away
While it hangs itself on the nearest tree limb
Allowing the vultures to pick at what’s left
Working it’s magic, numbing every nerve
Blurring my sight and blocking my memories...
