The levity left holes in me, dreading waking, dreams forsaken, teams are faking, but we're waiting as we're fading with the ratings, while it's raining, not containing, life it's draining, with time we flee
You tell me everything will be fine now theres milk in the fridge and our TV plays seinfeild reruns now. Just two days ago you came stumbling home. Just a week ago your wrists were sliced open like monarch wings.
From the darkened woodI walkto that hellish place where i once stoodI talkthe ghost of Chris pastis theremy futureHe mocksalcohol and dopewill bemy whips and stocks
Building up fire and ragethe past few daysfelt like a dragon trappedin a too small cagein and out of realityI phasewith an acquired tastefor doing dopetill im damn near comatose
you can runbut you cant hidethe Rules of societyi refuse to abidewhat would you expectwith parents like Bonnie an Clyde
What is Sober? Sober like fresh oxygen; like recognizing the earth as it rotates? I'm not sure. Sober like feeling a horses spine underneath my fingertips. Sober like understanding a divison between real and fake.
You are the reason why my life is a constant misery, You lied, abused, and hurt me leaving me aside to drown in my own tears. Hopeless I felt because of your addiction your addiction caused me to be angry at you.
Sometimes a flower Sometimes a thorn Sometimes the gold Sometimes the pawn Sometimes the sunshine Sometimes the rain Sometimes the freedom Sometimes the chain Sometimes the light
Not everyone can break through the chains of addiction; And although I did I still can't escape your conviction. I've been deemed unclean, no good, a crook; You'd see so much more if you'd take a good look.
A Cadet in college takes another sipalong with his brothers so why would he quit?Sitting on a bean bag having the time of his lifehe'd drink away his problems and wouldn't think twice.
I can hear him whisper in my ear, he calls my name, controls me with fear.   These vile demons running in my head, live in my dreams and beneath my bed.   I feel guilty.
Roll her up in the sheets of the night before. Light her up, watch her dance round your lips. She can’t be good to me, they say. Then why so sweet to my lungs?
       It starts out as a temporary fix. You tell yourself it won't happen again. All the emotions build up. The stress. The pain. The emptiness. Each thought. Each cut. Each stroke of the blade on the skin. An incision deeper then the last.
The glass hits the wall 
The bottle sits on the kitchen table Glinting in the sun She grabs it, begging for comfort Now that the day is done  
It's taken me a while to sit down at this keyboard So many sunrises so many nights My best friend on fire in a little glass tube I inhale the fumes let the feelings go
theres a beautiful silence hereas eyes droop and ears mufflesomething courses throughyour body, unexpectedbut gorgeous, warmed from the inside outclosing old wounds knitting together broken hearts
sometimes when my heartitches too bad i jump in to the habitati learned to tameso long agobut every now and theni'm outsmartedit's good there though,warm, tropical, secluded 
I can only see you in the mirror we shareI know you are not beastnor phantom, but you take careto show me each daythat I am yours andyou are mine.I miss you when you're goneand you miss me too
It has been a whole year And I have not seen you behind anything but the bottle We used to hit the town and live life with our feet on the throttle Friends in the village of spiraling ends
What makes me happy? What an odd little question you ask I thought life was supposed to be hard I thought I was supposed to pass by misfortune without any regard I thought you wanted me to be miserable
Like a lake of fire, I burn all my Kush and money. Good kid, got soul, Satan wanna take it from me. Can't pull the trigger to cop gold God thinks it's bummy. So a poor ass Joe pours out his soul cause he's so hungry.
It's inevitable that at some point in life, we all become cold, whether it's for a week or a lifetime, we become cold.    But what is being cold? Being cruel? Sad? Distant? It's subjective to each and every individual.   
The struggling To just open the bottle Then swallow The pills Choke me Let them I want to breathe no more Let the air stop its descent Into my lungs I'll choke on hot coals
Yes I am broken and bruised, Yes willingly, I love the abuse, Yes the nights are long There’s not enough distractions in the day, Yes the reasons to leave Outweigh the reasons to stay,
This thing, is breaking me apart, But it keeps me breathing, Even though my heart is bleeding, It over comes me from the inside out,   Strands of pink, faded dull,
Deep inside my veins runs blood and something darker Seeping through my skin and giving off an alluring odor  The pleasant taste of bitterness that encaptures the morning
I say I need my space And that's because I'm scared I see you everywhere and my mind is drifting toward your picture glaring there, It's just past 4 am and you can't sleep
I need to get over this why? cuz i feel like shit  but how do I just forget about this? it takes precedence in everything i do and everything I say
Wait Why is this happening? All the tears counting amounting And no one here comforting Something so unmistakable Something so breakable 
You want a homemade boat? we can cruise on soundwaves Good vibes are limited when you misbehave Jumping in the pool it's our homemade wet n' wild Look out onto Rollin hills while we smiled
Wake up, Bright light, stale breath, why is that candle still lit? Sleep's grip not yet done with you, Turn over, bend knee, unbend knee, turn back  - itch.
I took a commemorative driveBack to a town that glorified the wiseIt was 500 miles and three packs of cigarettesThe crisp, burning sound embedded in my head
Drugs cannot harm you Every drug needs a catalyst and that catalyst is you What were you thinking  when you were drinking Did you see the bottle as the enemy? Or yourself Every human can be a superhero
The world I live in is hazy, The life I am living is faint, There's a whole world inside my head, Coming into reality.   I walk around in the haze,
cold hard concrete and nothing but the clothes  on your back  for a mother   your wits keep you alive because  you've outgrown  couchsurfing; the shelters are full
I make art and write for others. My best friend asked me to write a poem for her 3 years ago.
Our struggle is real and without hope of ending. Sweet at first but now its hard to handle and heart aching . With every penny lost and every second spend;Regret.
  I write from a place that holds secrets Sex, alcohol, drugs, you know what the deal is We all lock it away to get a taste of freedom
It has been one of those days, Where I don't care if she goes or stays. Deadlines passed me by, And bosses expressed their dissapointment. It was generally a day, Of emotional excrement.  
You made me forget who I am...You made me forget who i was. This isn't me.....I guess it is now...I can't change...you made me how you wanted me and now I can't go back....I was so in love I didn't realize how much you were trying to make me someo
Back when I was an addict, I had this friend who, No matter how hard he tried to act, Who, Was never indirect, Who, Always had something negative to say, And one day he said,
That moment, where words from my mind Flow through my hand and into my pen That moment, when all of the thoughts Become organized, and no longer scream Are you listening?! Can you hear me... Do you even care?
"The brighter the shadow the darker the light I try to cover it up with the viceIs that giving up the fight Bait from the or maybe gift from christ Either way I won't take a bite
B is for the beer that im pouring down my neck. the E's are for the easiness how easy it is to get. R stands for ruined  thats what im gonna get.   P stands for the pills
*NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED*  
I suppose I would like You to know that I am sorry. That’s how all apologies and the like are supposed to begin, With that admission of guilt or regret or something that tastes like bile
3am At the same time every night you resonate within me intrigue my mind  enrapture  my soul My heart pumps blood full of passion  and seeping seduction  An addiction  Like the lady in the bible  It was an issue of blood It'll pass they said  A ph
The first time was magic. The last time was tragic.He begged her just once more...But she wouldn't have it. She couldn't have it...After all that had happened,All it would bring up were lies and their habits.
I can stop at any time, I don’t need it. I just want it. The needles, the pills… The crystal, the shrooms… The dust, the dragon… My tabs, my acid… My herbs and my rock… I like the warmth,
You came home late last night I noticed not because I waited for you but because when you're outside pounding on the door you were moaning your name
There's velvet lining on a woven silk floor,mirrored ceilings, and I can't find the door.My peaceful palace, once plainly placate,was fearfully empty, everyone within did vacate.Though I too, tried to leave the room,
K2
I inhale the thick ghosts until they rattle in my lungs and haunt the hallways of my throat, their foggy arms tickling a cough
I held my champagne glass high A man made a witty toast, We all laughed in agreement. And then we raised the liquid to our lips   As I looked around the vast living room,
I never realized how much I was missing out on life Never realized I was still in the night You found me smoking a cigarette and you reached out your hand Why me?
My body is a temple Which I used to respect But now, I’ve gone and fucked it up My temple is a mess
Addiction. It was what welcomed digression and rambles on imperfections without discrimination. Her fears of the unknown, Her uprising anxiety, Her heart-breaks,
You
Everyone says its not my faultBecause there’s nothing I could do  And yet of course, just by default I blame myself and not you  You’re like a bird with a broken wing You’re so fragile and misguided  You would always turn to me in spring But now l

There’s a saying that everybody has something to take away the painYours happened to be a poison,6 months before you leftThe doctor said if you continued to abuse alcohol You would die.Being addicted to something is like a moth is to a light. Ever
Dead, dead, is she ahead? Did she quit while she was ahead?
Always trying hard. Abusive devil drinks near. A senior I'll be .
I’ll get you high if you want to take the climb. Ten thousand steps. Explode, land mine. Watch your feet. Ecstasy.
I realized that people were a lot like coffee. It wraps itself around you and makes you wake up from the emotionless junk that you've been stuck in for an eternity. 
all i need is you, my dear. i need to feel the waves of your love. seeing you was like going to the beach, though i always said i wouldn't go in the water, i always did, and when i did, i'd never leave.
No one can truly know how it feels to have an addiction until they have experienced it. It lures deceptively attractive temporarily appealing then, disapointingly unsatisfying and
Uneventful brain canvass leaves much to be desired.Ancient wisdoms, science laws I've struggled to acquireFrom the corner of my eye they sink into the mirethat stagnant swamp that's left behind when big souls lose their fire.
You were just my brother Every morning as I'd get out of bed Mom and Dad in the kitchen holding coffee mugs as they shake their heads "We've tried everything we could" "The rehab hasn't done any good"
Use useless using user, Used by your abuser, Uses only to be used, The kind of clarity that leaves you confused. Tattoos made with stick and poke, But there’s no ink in needles filled with dope.
I knew someone with an addiction. It was a horrible conviction. He came in black and white color.
Her smile in these photos entice me to look deeper and beyond my interpretation.
Heavy eyed, beat, and defeated trying to defeat sleep I open my eyes to realize sleep swiftly crept in on me leaving me paralyzed, hypnotized, dont critizise I lost the fight to keep my baby insight
If you don't understand You cant helpMy mind is so abstract to the point where it's hard for certains to understand the art behind this madnessAnd my heart strings are pulling so tight The Symphony is clotted ready to release a spellbound baroque
I miss the way you’d get my heart going, the way you’d make it skip a beat, The way I wouldn’t even cared if I died with you, dying so happy wouldn’t at all be defeat...
For many men will chase the skies, but few will ever find them A mortal man will morph his guise, and his darkness shall consume him. Searching for a heaven here hurts many unforgotten
Every time I press sendI feel relievedThat someone is thereWilling to talk toMe.  
(A dual poem by Bailey Bennett)   Creativity never came without costs. I never saw a painter free from pain, or an actor who didn't dabble in
You told me you loved me, and I believed you.
 It takes time to understand what's important The needs are from what takes us apart. A thought not provoked alone but together A collective of sorts.  
You're my best friend But no one can ever know It's not that I'm embarrassed of you No of course not It's that everyone would be disappointed if they knew   I remember
I'm addicted to Pepsi. Something I seriously can’t live without. I know too much is bad for you, but pour me one before I start to pout.   I’m addicted to the sweet, sugar rush.
    SLEEP COMPLETELY CHALLENGING MY EVERY EFFORT TO STAY AWAKE- I OPEN MY EYES TO REALIZE-  SLEEP SWIFTLY CREPT IN ON ME LEAVING ME PARALYZED - HYPNOTIZED- DON’T CRITICIZE-
I can’t do this he doubtedI can’t do this he shoutedLetting out all his fear and anxietyA bubbling mess of insecurity and sobrietySwirling aroundAnd around
Like anger The alcohol courses through my blood Whispering sweet nothings to a deaf ear Promising better tomorrow's And more beautiful tragedies. There is no rhyme or reason To the fury in our souls
Everyday, the device with me. I see exciting sights and beautiful plants. I love writing about the sightseeing and get into the details. Sadly, not all the time, I can wrote about the amazing sights right then and there.
Winter came early this year and my body lies still, with no sudden movement. People always walk across here and none of them even stopped for one minute.
I found his wicked smile so alluring Black and blue dreaming  Victim of pure deceit But your love's pristine Divine empowering   I missed you Your touch and embrace
Spicy, robust, and redCausing conflagration in my headWithout this sauce I’d be dead.   Some say love is all you need,Others crave power to succeed,But a slave to greed is ne’er freed.  
She is the constant image that runs in my mind Like a kid on the weekend stuck on cartoons, I'd watch her all the time  She's my addiction and the one thing that I crave  Trying to feed my appetite for her is very grave 
Thoughts trickle down the muscles and tendons of my right arm, Tightening, loosening Useless gesutres, meaningless waves over a page brought to life By you.
There is nothing more beautiful than the feeling of love, Than the infatuation betwix two teenagers, Than the stolen glances of shy lovers Who fear unreciprocated love.   The feeling that realeases dopamine 
I need my phone.   Yes I'm addicted, But I need it.    What if someone text me,  Or messages me on Facebook,  Or maybe sends me a snapchat.  I need it.   
It's an addiction to have it in my hands, listening to it blast all different kinds of bands. Keeping in touch with the word by one click, but it can be shattered on the floor with one flick.  
I been on a hot streak to run my life to a place much to bleak.... Took a pit stop at the corner of depression and despair..... A place much to familiar, god knows Ive already been there....
Happy, and joyful kids. Making great memories. Days become darker Oldest kid takes care of younger siblings Mother comes home late every night with a new man Noone to call Dad. Or Mom...
Give me my soda, I won't ask you twice I need it right now, the essence of my life I'll count to three: one, two, okay now give it to me Do you see me laughing? This isn't a joke
The needle falls from my hand.Golden orbs still bubbling beneath my skin.Honey coursing through my veins.The sweet nectar breathes life to my lonely heart.She reaches into the inner depths of my being.
People say the relationship is toxic. That he'll kill me. (It surely well might be the case) But it's not your business I tell myself   People say the relationship ain't healthy.
She traded scars for callouses,and silver stained fingertips,rubber shaving bits sticking to her shirt,she drew and wrote the pain away,for all that it was worth,  
I woke up every single day sure that I was dead; I couldn't seem to silence all the noise within my head.Reaching for my phone though I could barely use my eyes; my life was so consumed with the chase of getting’ high.Dropping to the ground, agony
I drag you in and kick you back out, dropping you from your highyou enjoy it when you're near me though I'll be the reason you'll dieYou inhale me, I infect your blood streamSeeping into your poresUntil you crave me
I want to tell you I will do anything to keep what we have together, That I will try to follow through and give my effort to do better.
Hello my name is . . . And I'm an addict.   It started out casually,  just a drink of this idea, a future with you. I could see our path unfolding but
You are young, dumb, and rebelious. You are a high school senior with your class song on the radio. It is the night of graduation and to celebrate you and your knuckle head friends decide to go to a party in the woods.
Three years later, I wasn’t prepared. I looked at the driveway, and headed for the stairs. The cement was cracked. The grass was to my knees.
I’m addicted to a person Who’s addicted to a drug That played a mean trick and no longer makes him numb. “I’ll be right back,” he says. I look at him and nod
"I don't drink" There was a time when those words were true But now. . .  Well, not so much.   Now I love the feeling Of drowning in a sea of fog, On neither side of that thin line
How could he? This man who promised her everything, said he loved her, made a vow. This man who was protected by her, shielded from horrors that he couldn’t handle on his own.
You hurt me in the most worst possible ways. Now I'll never be able to see the light in these beautiful days. You broke my loyalty and trust, Now I'm convinced that the beer and these pills are a must.
If
If I could talk to you one last time I'd ask, "Was it really worth it? Were the drugs really worth your life?
These feelings are becoming tighter around my throat. I try to hold my breath but the months just float.   My esophagus collapses and I begin to wimp.
who am I? I am a surviver because I have seen the gates of hell open up before me to hold me and keep me near the needle in my arm was just a temporry fix of how I felt
“I’m just going
Memories   where my mind drifts off too at the wrong times never seems to happen at the right times. I close my eyes and I see my self cry
Never so potent a drug than the feeling of falling in love. I sit now in a state of melancholy that lies within; reminicing over what could have been.
I raised you since I was 9 years old 
Gosh youre so beautiful!  So why does my stomach hurt? Trying speak but not a word! 
Here’s to dejá vu.
It is your best kept secret and your biggest mistake: almost like an incredibly attractive person catching your eye and then manipulating you to explore their territory and eventually uneasily stepping in.  
I am more than my past.  I am not the things my abuser told me I was. I am strong.  I am not imperfect. I am like a stained glass window, My broken peices make me beautiful.  
take it off so i can take you off you squirt like a fire hose on full blast i love the way you ride me and how you bounce that ass as our lips contact our bodies overheat
The addiction 
The desire gets me. It grabs a hold of me and does not want to let go. I never want it to stop. I want the feeling forever and I want it just for myself.
ouch, wait was that pain real or in my head?Why am I in my bed?...... This isn't my bed....Please let there be red bull or Gatorade in the fridge...... noI love dick- thank God it's removable
SIMPLE ROSE 18
Chocolate chastises my every thought, addiction from something easily bought, dagerous yet sweet, I am caught. What waits within the wrapper will always win, we all have our demons, and chocolate is my sin,
Glasses covered with roses Shattered as he closes the door behind him Heart filled with devastation Tears fill my eyes, asking why? Mustering up the strength to pick up the pieces
Mom
I know you love me, your love is true But you have a funny way of expressing it, And with that I haven’t figured out what to do.
Do not love a man who drinks as if he is invincible (but complains about the hangover);
 Dear Ana
Dropping cocktail names because they sound so sweet Auntie's house last night too easy, score some at the meet
This device in you hands, good for so many things.                                                                              But right now all you need is it's music, and the distraction it brings.
I cannot recall how it began, I do not know how it will end I remain unapologetic and indifferent while I play pretend Are the droplets on my face those of the rain or of my own tears?
I'm sorry my love but I have a confession,
I am The one you don't mess with When she's walking down the street Soldia flowin' through my veins
Not really sober,
Addictive desires,
Addiction struggles, painstaking recovery,
  Money’s on red.
Addiction,
In the begining,
I have an addition problem, I must admit. 1 means one more, and 2 is spelled t-e-n. 30 is basically twenty-nine, And anymore feels like shit.   But this is not a decrypting test,
Further down the rabbit hole,into myself into my soul,knowing myself seeing the others,embracing the fact they are me, we are brotherswe've been hurt by our fathers,
I feel like I'm addicted to you...I am consistently high on your kiss, your touch, your hot breath on my neck. The way your chest beats to the drum of the heaviness in your voice when you moan out to me.
I'm drunk on the very thoughts of what we could be, tripping on all the possibilities.
i close my eyes and see every detail of them down to their toes and nose I notice their perfect skin and start to wonder where they've been
I've been sitting here all night, watching what i shouldn't Snatching up pics I normally wouldn't
I wake up early to my standard annoying alarm reminder to start my day.  I feel like there is an overwhelming amount of responsibility that is causing myself dismay. 
I swallow the poison my body craves, While I know the things at stake. I claw at pieces of my skin for my mother’s sake. I hurt my insides, to save the out; There’s always a price to pay.
I know fear and loathing
One time I got some coke that was real funky, wet and chunky, turned my nose into a rubber hose that couldn't find the end of a line--   Another time I got this:  
You took an innocent girl and flipped her whole world around.
Will I find Salvation Once I find Redemption  
Back and fort
Where does the time go? 
Full blown addiction is eating when you are hungry.
You are the beast that has slowly stolen my soul. 
Addiction. Is an evil thing He’s your friend but he’s also your foe He holds out his hand waiting for you to jump
Just when you think You've got it under control
You're just killing yourself.   Your eyes grow more dim, the night flooding your vision. Your mouth speaks of things only said when lust kisses your lips. Your mind retreats to the darkest corners
What is it? Why is it? How? Lunar gone loony That Jamacian wants bacon My atlas is torn and all I can do is watch some porn and I slide---
It's like I'm addcited You're a poison I know you'll kill me I don't seem to care though   I can feel it Death Running through my veins Spreading through my body  
How when your life starts to spin out of control You barely notice          How you can never really pin point the moment When things got out of hand Or you choose not to
I fall quickly
Some people smoke weed to distract their mind how they feel,cause they don't wanna see the truth, but soon they'll notice it hit's hard and real.A lot of the time this is just for fun,
give me the razor, with edges stained red, give me the pills that will silence my head. give me the vodka, an infinite glass, the cigarette smoke, till my cravings are fed.  
You say you’ll try it once
I come fro
Her eyes protrude the needle cuts through her vein she can't escape
Alone and isolated inside my head, I begin to wish that I was dead. Fuck this life. I feel like I've already done this twice while overpaying the price. Well isn't this nice...
Still waiting desperately pleading that you would release my love
I used to to an addict with a bad addiction Now I'm one of a kind, a limited edition From being locked up with no sense of direction Now I'm on full blast like an adrenaline injection
Ive been MIA for days and when i came back i got knocked sideways i had to follow they're rules for days so i left and when i came back again everything was a haze so i got up took a left
Being drug-free is uplifting. Being drug-free has impacted me. Now I have my life back and strive not to lose it again; Too bad along the way I lost many a friend. I am no longer dependent. I am free.
a throbbing discontent, a deluted sence of hope, feeds my broke ego, a freaksh brute on dope. a limp and vile nusience, that ever haunts my bliss, a foul and criptic tourment,
A heart should never ache like this, my soul should never feel this much pain, I need the dose of a loving touch,
I will be damned, before I live a day without you You could send me to the other side of the world, and I would still come back like I always do,
It's Pain which lead's us to Achieve Some 
He does not love me, he just takes away the pain for the moment, exchanging laughs, caressing me, looking at me the way no ever does,  never judging,  no worries, but just for the night
  The wind blows, the leaves fall, but time still seems to stop You close your eyes, and pray to God, that your heart doesn’t pop You feel the bench below you; you see the grass and trees,
Oh no... I feel it creeping up again, the sad thoughts and troubling memories that haunt my dreams at night. What can I do to help myself?
Little one it is okay, Little on i am here with you now. Little one put the knife down, I am here now.  I know your angry,
Rest In Peace we post because he's gone Robin Williams one of our own Suffering from severe depression Were we blind? The truth is no one ever looked him in the eye Bent over laughing thinking he's so happy
It seeps into your bones
It's just one more hit
Mother of mine The all being one to me for twelve years With the messy hair and even messier brain With the laugh that could infect an entire room With the painter's hands and explorer's eyes
"Ayo Cuz Scrap These Drugs!" I Dont Play That. I Think Not While I Wear My Thinking Cap "Stop Playing Cuz Take These Drugs,Roll em Up And Catch A Buzz" That Was My Man I Showed Him I Can Stand Up For Myself
When you truly love someone, their heart is yours. That one person is your other half. You always have that spark That can never pull you apart through thick and thin.  
LSD
emotional calousses and psychological imbalances there's unwanted inhabitants in my mind's inner palaces i never fathomed this like a sudden heart attack kicks in i need to relax, sip the jack, numb the madness  
Red
She glances around, Then ducks into the bathroom.
I never thought I'd hate something as much as you  You take away the good people from the world  You make them want you more then anything or anyone else  Those with hard enough lives you make worse
The strongest man endures the darkest days But to endure does not mean that he simply Takes And
Where did you go?
Light another cigarette, maybe I'll find happiness in the smoke. No, instead I'll scream until my throat bleeds, and run until my lungs give out.  
My tender body—anguished and ailing— Fighting drug addiction   Is stuck in a dreaded destination, A place where people lose themselves,   Where yearnings go unanswered.
Eyes sore, pierced from what I've seen.
New Mexico dreams can’t shake the salt from the icy New York streets, and I might need glasses ‘cuz I can’t see straight. Too many empty glasses, ‘cuz I can’t see straight.
  Despair. That look in a mothers' eye.
you are hell but I am addicted   I am addicted to so many dangers but you are my favorite    you are slowly killing me  but I do not mind
Honesty is a lonesome place When you’re lying on the ground And you find yourself
Pools of blood encroach the den, the mother whimpers  when she realizes her son is near-dead. Lifeless, pale, motionless on the floor, in his own waste, crumpled to the core. Needles of misery
I am not a junkie, a dead beat, a loser I am not a pot head, a lush, a crack head, or pill popper I am not a boozer, a drunk, a tweeker, a bum
Enhale toxins. It numbs.
I woke up today paralyzed. 100 and 44 weeks straight and this pain hasn't let up. 26,297 hours. That's three years, and we're going on our fourth.  I tried opening the blinds but the sunlight hurt. My skin,
I remember the first time you drew in my intoxicating fragrance;Your watery eyesAching chestAnd burning throat—
Night after night, I somehow find myself
Addiction consumes us all. Who will be the next to fall. Warnings and labels we do not adhear to. Our minds clouded by a simple desire. The next fix is iminate. Those who've fallen become names, upon stone.
Twisted, I missed you, and I hate you so much But my hunger, desire, confirmed by your touch So cold, so sharp, but I love your embrace I loathe that I love our discolored lace
I’m an addict
I’ve seen the promising become promise-less, helpless, useless   A straight A student taking a straight edge razor to prescription pills To heal the hell until she fell Drowning neck high in alcohol  
you're addicting like the sweet smell of spring
Fuck first semester And financial aid and scholarship applications and just money in general. And the 3.5 I needed if I wanted to come back. And my parents. And money And society for revolving around money
I'd go back in time, save her from down under. Lift her up, change her views. I look at her now: scars intact, blue eyes faded, hair lackluster, faith defeated.  
I have an unhealthy attraction to brokenness
It was always the rush that was the best part: That feeling of surreal realities as they brushed past my consciouness, tempting me further into a smoke-filled oblivion. I never wanted to leave.
Happiness Anger Love Hate   Presence Absence Prompt Late   Pride Embarrassment Confidence Worry   Ignore Obsess Delay
Oh what would I possibly do and who on earth would I be, if for just one tiny moment
  O’ Facebook, why must you be the molly to my generation? 
The human race is full of malcontent, bigotry, ignorance, and destruction, But the majority of you, so happy giddy people on social media, only fill your news feeds with funny memes and meaningless statuses.
Two sisters young climb up a tree In the snow of Christmas day They peek over the fence to watch, to see How the neighbor children play. They climb back down, they go inside
I'm sick of the struggle.The uphill battle I constantly face.The decision on whether or not to stayor leave from this place.This poem won't even express it.
When you start off young you see yourselfan astronaut among the starsor driving in all the fancy cars. You never know what mess you’ll get in
Battle scars and broken armor That's how I see you A beautiful soul in a ravaged body With nothing there's hope, without hope there's nothing
An obsession An addiction. It tortures me, but I need it. I got to know the number on the scale.   Restrict my food. Binge eat. Purge. Thoughts of laxatives.
Habits can be good or bad They can make your moods range from happy to sad
This weary chime,
It's not just one time. I know because you've said that before "It's just one drink." "It's just one hit." "I promise, I could quit." It's not fine! So wake up!

A perfect place Known by few Sunshine and warmth The sky bright blue   The girl wandered Taking it in Smiling brightly  Curiosity within  
Perfectly set up In a long, straight row On and on forever Stood thousands of dominoes   Taunting those who passed Catching some each day Those who figured
              Running, running, running As fast as I can go They're coming closer still My breath is running low

It's small and cold in the palm of my hand, Beautiful yet repulsive, 
Everyday I wake up in constant pain. Not physical. But it might as well be. Cause I'm hurting. Deep down, I feel like giving up. On people. Family. Myself. Life.

It all started, one night at the bar, In the front seat of a parked car. Do you party, a friend said to me, Not really, but shit let's see. Glistening in the moonlight, There lay the white lines of destiny.

  I don’t know howto cope right nowI’ve got a blade in my palman urge in my bodytoo many feelings in my brainand so many things I didn’t say
This urge I have to fight it I have to be strong; I cannot give in I need to prove to myself That I can resist That I am strong I cannot think about this urge Unless I channel it somehow
The eyes water, throbbing behind sockets. One more kill until this game is done.   Throbbing behind sockets, electrical pulses run up through the cords into the burning computer screen.
I'm addicted to the secrets you whispered upon my lips;  and the smell you left burning in my lungs and the tears you continue to let fall down my face; and the taste of empty promises you left on my tongue.
                                       Sorrow   My heart is slowly breaking into two pieces. Nobody can hear my silent screams to my daddy, telling him to take me home.
I told him... "Pretty girls don't have scars," And I cried. With a finger under my chin, He made me look into his eyes. He told me that's what makes me beautiful And kissed every tear
It's the bitter, sometimes, sweetness that leaves me wanting more Whether the weather is cool or hot I can't seem to stop this addiction Caffeine is simply a bonus

Close your eyes and lie to rest. Look at you, what a mess. Sleep all day, party all night. You're almost always out of sight. I just want you to quit, is that too much to ask? Since you're always gone and having a blast.
  For the mother who never sees her daughter for who she is, Blinded by a chemical not worth what she’s already lost. To the sister who comes home mid-morning,
I have no room to judge Living on the street, they never seem to budge Living off a dollar or a penny Everyone's afraid to give Thinking that people gone spend it on henny But that's how they learned to live
Stretched in all directions, a reflection of where you stand. Left in, to fend with no defense, horizons end is arid sand. Tongue is numbed, a dry sponge in your mouth on which you choke.
Addicted to organization  through words, throughout your thoughts  Addicted " to a certain kind of sadness"  within your fears and your doubts  Addicted to the words that bring you up 
It pulled me in like a siren It crashed into me like head on collision on the highway of life   I was hooked It became my forbidden fruit

Humans are addicts. We are addicted to the tantalizing idea of escape. Escape comes in all forms. Alcohol, drugs, sex. Books, writing, art. Anything that gets
it's been exactly a week  since I remembered what the scent of  your skin did to me.   and the truth is, if I were in a program right now-- some 12, 18, 42-step nonsense--
Pearls--blackly luminescent--fade Under the burnt midnight oil’s parade.   They burn clear Onto weakened corneas, thrown Into sharp relief
It's sick It's twisted What it does to him He thinks he can stop But the addiction comes from within The smoke creeps up his heart Spinning in his head Causing his mind to spark
The Addict..   Call it a “jones”, an “itch” A desire for a quick fix to ease the pricks Call it a hobby, a leisure, a feature pastime A way to wind down, relax and float

Here's something for you all. My world is modern Technicolor; vibrant, awe-inspiring, filled with wonder an special effects. It is stunning. It is my Xanadu All I could dream for, and more.
Your call reduces my maturity, Seduces the majority, Of men who set foot in your lair, With your seductive glare, Your song sings of addicting lust, Less of a need but a must,
Life lost, a lost life, Youth wasted, a wasted youth, Tired of trials, trial and error, No end in sight, living in terror, A slave to the night, always running scared,
Gambling is a sin, so never begin, Money madness makes it more maniacal, Stacks against itself the odds of real success, It should see it’s blessed, learn to rest well, Don’t send yourself to hell,
My hand, yes it hurts but my mind hurts more. Why do I write you ask? Because I can't go back to how I was before.  I can't afford to be that girl Who feels the need to end it all.
The bright neon lights glistened and gleamed Dancing and twirling across the black night sky Before they were distorted by the blur As the car went whizzing by The warm summer night is teeming with magic
You're walking home from the store It's burning on the pavement floor You have this sudden urge, what for? To pick it up and smoke it   You've never cared to try it When "peer-pressure" as they call it
Welcome to the lost city, a gathering place for broken souls everyone is lonely here but that seems to be the path we were bound to go, but oh no, we will never let it show, ask us how we are doing and we will say we're good to go.

Bright flashing gold and green hypnotic, It’s plain this substance is narcotic.   Desire that we can’t ignore, The more we have, the more we adore,
Seasons don't change when there's ice in your veins. I am a victim A sweet target with barely bitten skin torn by life's fangs. I am forgotten I light fire against chrome but his reflection hasn't a name.
You.You think you want me outta your life?We both know that's a lie.Sure I'll give some space to fly.But without me long, you die.This is our complicated relationship.  Face it.

Because in the nook of your chest lies my desire Buried somewhere between your ribs are my dreams But yet your setting my heart on fire I’m bursting at the seams   It tears me to pieces to see you
Let’s swap hands you take my heart I’ll take your cigarette. Light me up here I’ll block the wind with the cuffing of my hand.
Your everywhere down the street  in my school Your even found down the gravel road You robbed me of my childhood my dreams even my sanity Momma always warned me about you
Gun in his hand with his face to sky / Ashamed of himself, he started to cry / Freak, Homo, Loser, Gay / Venom-dripped insults everyday / Nobody knows what he's feeling at night / The pain he goes through, the internal fight / Pulled the trigger,
You seep away Into my reserve of affection That iconic muscle subject to pains of my own obsession A first glance through a marked window Couldn’t mask the feeling of the clock running slow  
                     
Feeling terrible Melt your ashes on my tongue Tasting them like nothing I walk to walk, stiff joints crack, Bone-tip The time that knows no bounds Knows them indeed.
Could you complete these next sentences for me? Because i don't feel like i'm worth listening to And could you please remind me why i breath? When theres a stake in my lungs and i could care less if it leaves

The bottle hits her lips And her world tips She stops shaking She stops aching And she feels okay

Listen up you little twerps. I’m going to give you some very bad advice, and just hope that it works. If you should have an issue, just take a puff from a blunt and everything will be fine.

I inhale, Smoke fills my lungs. Leaving behind a bitter sweet taste on my tongue. Bitter poison but sweet relaxation. Absorbing into my bloodstream my own condemnation. I try to fight it, but too strong is the temptation
Just one more drink you told me Just one more pill you said I wake up every morning And expect to find you dead The drug is your master that won't set you free You choose it over life You choose it over me

Endless despair courses through my hollow veins The hallways scream loneliness as I wallow in pain The drugs of the night breathe, the drugs of the night breath As it walks the earth people fall victim to the lure
I have a problem, Day by day I am consumed; My legs are thicker, waist is bigger, She's over it they presume; But they don't know about the war in my mind, For it wasn't the three-step curable kind;
It all started in the beginning. Creating this perfect world, that has no ending! A magnificent place with many dreams More than what anyone has seen

Waking up and feeling hope. Hope only to be dashed by my own stupidity. Letting myself fall far away from help And drowning in my mistakes. How do I escape it all? Swallow another pill,
clink clonk I sing as I roll in your pocket a reminder I burden you you want me You need me but you never get a chance to keep me
The things that I take Make me feel real People tell me it's all fake The colors that I see They represent me It's flowing through my veins Until it reaches my brains I think I'm doing fine
The mortal man may say "fires burn with a symbolic passion". Such a thought does not begin to describe the attraction. The flame atop his hand burns, not with an interest, but an addiction.
He started as a friend, But wasn’t in the end. He played his part so well, How hard it was to tell, Of how he did deceive, I wished that he would leave. Freedom did I seek, Though I was so weak...
She was feeling lonely lonely so alone He was horny, said he'd make her day She resisted at first, but she knew him already.

As we grew I watched you with ease, A friendliness only siblings could share But as you aged I watched that joy cease: And in our friendship you seemed not to care. In my maturity I saw your pain and flaws,
It all started with a click I entered the game, unafraid because I knew His mercy was new Each Day Ready for whatever came my way because He would never leave me I’d point and click, taking my chances
What if everything was different? What if I wasn't gifted? What if I just gave up on my dream and never tried to live it? What if I'd paid attention? What if there was no addiction?
I love that way you look at me Those blue eyes smiling back With that gentle look on your face Love the way you make me feel Like there's no one else in sight When you hold me close And kiss me flawlessly
Are you high? Don't lie. No use. Misuse? Misunderstood. Miss Independent Thought she could. All Alone Hold the phone.
It's like heroin, each word said Injected into my ear Your lips are the needle. I get chills, I know it's wrong So wrong. I try to avoid it by plugging my ears The urge is too strong to
Recovery is a process and not an event It's a struggle not to win but to find some common sense We're stuck in a world where failure is wrong Well, failure is a puzzle piece that completes our song
