Warm and inert I lie motionless
Swaddled in acrid smoke
Head lolls to and fro
Eyes flicker

Mind lost
must engage limbs
pungent odour sedates me
Warm and inert I die motionless

feels so good

causes trouble

joy misunderstood

sssometimes I see double

my mind races, ssspeeds

how fast the money goes

the buzz that fills my need

how much I sssnort up my nose

No respect
 † love
 † care

Only anger
 † † sadness
 † † fear


& abused

everyday is hell to me
all i want is to be free
from this life that controls me

Shrouded eyes,
away with the birds,
shutting down,
on cloud nine,
this confident bliss,
shines over me,
and I wouldn't miss,
the feeling of being free,
one more pull,
to calm the nerves,
and I will fall,
into blissful ease.

Noone can ever see it,

But a possessed manís blindness

is able to make him understand.

The sickness is its own cure,

the medicine for medication.

Liquid fire in disguise

of simple poison

in my veins.

The matchbox trembled in terrified hands.
You can only go so far before you can't come back.
But on and on they went anyway.
It's their own fault when they fade away.

glass shards indent the coffee table
 theres a mirror there
and remnants of some
chemical snow
and her lipsticks
still uncapped
and on
the floor,
she won't come back
for that,
they never do
after the
drugs are

Big pupils and tired eyes,
A combination of artificial divide.
The longing of a good nights sleep,
Is ignored by a substance more elite.
Another nights thrill to complete,
Ashamedly taunts, a shameless defeat.

Sing to me of the woman
Muse to none
 † Herself
She kept crystal meth under her
Fingernails, but
She bites them short
To keep those demons away
From everything she
 † † † Touches.

Swallow this sweet, blue gift of bliss
And your life for the moment, is something you'll never miss
Drown in colors you've never seen
Dreams things you've never dreamed
You'll never come down

DU Poetry : Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Poems

Written by MissPoeticTragedy MissPoeticTradedy
My feeling collide
A conflict of emotions
One contradiction to the next
When I get high the matters fade
The uncontrollable fantasy cascade
As i watch my trembling hands
They record the process in demand.

Powdered dream
on silver foil
above a fluid flame
liquefies to violent life

smoky whiskers
spiral from a writhing head

garnered in a paper vein
then held in burning lungs
till beast set free, is dead

What defines a nineties child?
For me
it was Saturday morning cartoons
actually worth waking up for
the rising popularity
of enviromemtal issues
video games
George Bush parodies
green day
the nineties
were good to me

It was actually pretty easy
To get the script
From doc.

All I had to do was ask.

Now Im watching in
3rd person as I cut
A few pills with a cigarette.

I wanna feel.
Feel the blood dripping.
The steel slithering down and up.
Feel fire burning.
Burns across this body.
Feel my heart being cut out.
Stabbing over again.
Feel these old wounds opening up.

MaryJane, light of my life
Fly me so high
From day into night
Watch the moon and sun go by
From darkness into light

MaryJane, inhale soul
Can't get full
Off just one bowl

I'm high as a duck
and crazy as fuck!
Weed didn't make my brain
become so strange,
it just enhanced the flavor...
and if you're a zombie
do me a favor -

Take me away
Drag me down
But only for a little while
I can't be gone too long
Wash away all feeling
Don't let anyone in
Let's escape reality
This is surely my favorite sin

silvery haze, a cloud
of death hangs over
drowns in stench

an escape made
none too soon
grip broken
unhanded by

chain demolished
addiction destroyed
the ash falls
no more

life reclaimed
a battle fought
victory foreseen
momentary bliss

trays emptied
cancer supply
no more

the more chemical smoke i inhale,
the closer i get to this lonely death.
how did my life become a black out flail.
im that lost soul whose nightmare is meth.
