Drugs Poems

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

Published on 14th July 2014 7:49pm
Written by Duncan Alexander Duncan
Wallowing in weight
it feels like depression is my fate,
I pick up just to fall back down
I wear a smile but feel a frown

I feel I should be happy,
I'm clean and in good company
Truth be told I'm feeling a tad crappy
like life and living have been dumped on me

I thought I saw myself today
I caught a glimpse of hope
but in truth when I'm on the outside
I don't think I will cope.

3...heart rate increasing 2...ears start ringing whole world is spinning! throat freezes up. legs went unsteady. something rising up in my throat but i got nothing in my belly looking round the room everything but my own chest is breathing, Psychodelic trip, the tweak alone got me crazy, take a look in the mirror, face all white and pasty, muscle all gone, skin just hanging looking lazy. staring at the rig thinking, "Man this shit is crazy!" collosal pupils, vision is hazy, everything i see begins to blend, thinking to myself, "this might be the end." take a second look, its my best...

Fucking Floyd smoked the second half of the letter and now it's raining perpendicular again

What the hell!

Dammit planet
spin the other way

Surrounded by inertia while immobile
is just as problematic as an insomniac who's also an amnesiac
while all traces of vulnerability decay like yesterday

I got a sneaking suspicion I might be a separatist alarmist  

I lost my damn head at least that's what my head said
but I remember having a really deep thought
I just can't remember where the hell I put it

A dozen doctors have said I'm sick
That I need to be set straight.
Your much too morbid for life young child,
So you must medicate.
A dozen bottles of pills and potions,
These will relax your mind, they say
It's important that you take them child
The dosage is three times a day.
Take one when you wake up,
To forget those nasty dreams,
Take one in the middle of the day,
To silence out those screams.
And take one before bed my child,
So you may sleep at night,
It will block out all the bad things,
So you won't wake in fright.

I want to feel the bliss of ignorance,
instead of the sorrow of experience
Kourtney says to himself before he takes another shot of the liquid amnesia
Which becomes his either, numbing his body and mind to the highlight reel that plays in his head
and he’ll only look to feel again once he is in a another woman's bed
Because feeling for Kourtney have never been more than skin deep
Emotions he never learned because he never had anyone to teach
I guess the closest you can say in the anatomy lessons he got from his babysitter when he was young

    I heard 300 songs  
that were 3 minuets long  
then 6 days later  
   My memories were gone  
Just some spotless thoughts  
of how the future might be  
  If I walked away    
from the former me  
So, I hit rewind & ran away  
to try & find    
              my yesterdays  
  That was then & this is now  
Still I live    
        in a thoughtless cloud  
I can't remember the past  
& every time that I try...

***Warning: Some Offensive Religious Content***

my head zoomed through halls of space
like the fling of a ride at an amusement park
and then a produce man visited me inside my body with a container of rotten vegetables + fruit and asked me if he could have mine (my disease) and i hesitated clutching the small container of my own and then tossed it to him saying “Why not?”  

trying to keep awake
on sleeping pills in bed
ain’t an easy task
boy oh...

Her subtle smile    
Direct eye contact    
A quiet twinkle    
Then the advice:    
" If you dry the pods,    
you can access the seeds..."    
This, and the extra pod she gave me,    
leads me to believe    
She knows what's up    
She's Hip

Of all of the things that we all love the most
So many change all of your wishes to stone
You may feel at ease but you don't even know
What has become of the life that you know
A wonderful friendship so foolishly made
Forgotten your past which was all in good faith
No time for worship in churches of grace
Alone in the dark feeling nothing but hate
Stories and lies then will twist up the truth
Your heart faded black like the shadow of doom
So little time to come down from the moon
Too many points got filled up by the spoon
Moving to...

Just another young man dead,
He could have been alive instead,
To do the things he planned to do,
And help some other people too.  
But no, he went and drank some beer,
And now he is no longer here.  
He lost his future, lost his life,
He'll never have a child or wife.
There'll be no more of anything,
No more joys that life can bring,
No more feeling, no more thought,
No more life of any sort.  
And all because he drank some beer.  
How I wish he was still here,
I wish that beer was gone instead.
And that alcohol was...

DU Poetry : Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Poems

Published on 12th July 2014 5:45am
Written by Duncan Alexander Duncan
The eve before Christmas
a day like all days
I sit 'doing stepwork'
while in my head games get played
I let my mind wander
it gets lured from my life
subtle probing
pushes my mind
to piss poor places
I feel like what I think's being watched
from the eyes of other people's faces
I give in to distraction
these now neunced thoughts
letting my mind be moved
like my thoughts can be bought
I lack conviction
is what I tell myself
it's my wanton willpower
and incessant indecision
that flummox my footing...

Coming face to face
or more like elbow to ear
with the reality of my situation
and the sum of my fear
I don't know what to do
with this weight on my head,
I thought I'd held the weight of the world
but beared my ego instead
It was too hard to handle
it tore at my mind
these things in my head
that'd been making me blind
there was a clash twixt two worlds
out my head and within
the latter of the two
causing me to sin
As I find that I can't runaway from my head
as I...

God is in the water
he watches us through the rain
he lives with in all of us
and lets my mind
and world
be sane

He's the care between two creatures
the joy one brings to others
patience and tolerance some of his features
and love between life's brothers

Water is life
life is for living
living is caring
and caring is sharing
in the experience of life.

Pulling through
unparalleled pressure
tantamount to tons
a terrifying trial
a life lived
not lied

Finding happiness
and hope
keeping in mind
life's scope
we watch and we wait
as we deal with life's weight

Taking pleasure in the small things
all the beauty that life brings,
the stars out each night
and the world in the light
we make the best of our fate
not leaving life 'til too late

A desired hope
For I can not hear
Let the spoiled mascara
Leave a black tear

The body is polluted
Filled to the core
Blackened with smoke
But she still craves more

Needles and liquid
A little at a time
Help this poor girl
She'll soon be blind

Careless; she is.
That's how she'll always be
She cant stop it
It's what she needs

Hello old friend,
I see you haven't changed a bit,
since the last time we met.
Wish I could say the same.
You always helped me through tough times,
always quickened the erasing.
Even though we have been friends for awhile...
it's time to say goodbye.
So thank you for the release,
but I have her now,
and she is all i'll need

Naked, he coddled himself
in a brown bath of booze—
whiskey washed him away
from the world.
All who inherited his life
wore black, produced
tangible tears, even
arranged the wake
at his beloved bar
where strangers were invited
to celebrate him,
honor the consumer
He admired the verisimilitude
of strangers—how they came
to know him after one
simple beverage, how they
respected him for his—?
Diligence, a loyalty
of love like his
was unparalleled,
the way he grabbed the glass
the way...

Seeking pain
To feel alive

Never asleep
Dreams show mistakes

Needles pierce
World melts away

Shadows follow
Mind plays tricks

Let go
Death has come

God damn
what the hell
left there
just the same
Saw nothing
but all the way
Fell in
the lie to bare
taken hold
there is no air..
what do i do
Im drooling
seeing things
they are confusing
what do i do
im dying
tripping out
im here just crying.
What the hell do i do.
Locked down
feeling dead
seeing colors
a little bit of red
God damn
here i be
not knowing who i am
or what it means
but oh damn
I wish i was ahead.
blame me
I may be death...
