Cocaine

We pour a quarter on the tabletop and   † † † †  
Start snorting until our faces go numb. † † † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
My side girl's clothes fall off and † † † † † † †  
She rubs blow all across her gums. † † † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
Our door remains double locked and † † † † † † † †  
Black blinds keep us safe from the sun. † † † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
My fiance says she's done if I don't stop but † † † † † †  
In the end, she'll always be under my thumb. † † † † † † † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
My Mom cries often, feels sad and lost. † † † † † † †  
I lie and say I'm quitting but she isn't dumb. † † † † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
My Dad just pretends to be in shock but † † † † † † † †  
We both know he gave me my first bump. † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
These cravings for white lines won't stop and † † † † † † †  
Nose bleeds and broken promises aren't fun. † † † † † † †  
†† † † † † † † †  
Shame is a feeling I choose to block and † † † † † † † †  
I'm worried I'll never let go of the gun.

This is a poem I just found that I wrote four years ago when I was 22 and really going through it.
