Everyday I regret the nicotine that I inhale, I've tried to pray- but the thing is "I'm already in hell." Going to sleep is a pet peeve, with a consequence of bloody snot when I sneeze. Smoking weed was relaxing, 
It’s supposed to be a fun night Dancing with friends Hitting on strangers Having a little too much to drink

Our days were filled with long walks straight out of reality While the cold wind blew on us, and I trusted that you were more than what they said you were: Angry. But the stories we told filtered the air

My father and I are one in the same; according to some.  He hates math, me too,  but I believe there are more similarities than not. After all we have been through and got. Medications, prescriptions,
Trapped in his own asylum Letting fumes take hold of his lungs Booze takes over his brain Like a video control game. Midnight thoughts Rake at his mind Like jubilation Being exiled.
Did a good heart get you far As simple as it seems Did a good mom get you sharp As simple as her seams   Did a good heart feed your soul Or did it starve you to death
Everyday that I awake I thank the creator for the day then I brush my teeth with toothpaste and wash my face. As I pray for my sake Lord my soul is yours to keep, guide me through this day and keep me safe like a sheep

Oh no! Today was the day You murdered a whist Who stole the skunk With your own two fists   You have blood on the bed And brains on your shoes You must drive yourself
You grow up understanding, Until the day you don’t. You grow up knowing, Until the day you won’t.   They tell you that it’s easy.
They say life is a gift, That love bridges the rifts, They say 'follow your dreams', They ask you to come clean.   But what if life is greedy and shallow, Driven by heads and hearts that are hollow,
It’s amazing how you have the ability to cut me down and bring me to my highest of highs, In a single sentence, you have this uncanny ability to remind me how small I am.

Alcohol for the first time Alcohol every weekend  Alcohol every free-time Now the drunkness came to an end.   Weed for the first time Weed every weekend  Weed every free-time
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

Late night conversations make you learn a lot about the people you thought you knew, with liquor savored on our lips, and the night sky above, everything seemed infinite.
Shadows, Acrosss the field, Across the meadow, Across the lawn and across the room, As the adults yawn and the children snore.   Lollipops, gumdrops, Nightmares and blessed dreams,
I’ll get you high if you want to take the climb. Ten thousand steps. Explode, land mine. Watch your feet. Ecstasy.
Poppies asunder put me under;A slumber bathed in deep, dark umber, Oneiroi aplenty approach me there;Company where there exists no air. Poppies given to me by you;Poisonous mixture, a warlock's brew.

Smoke fills my nose.The sweet scent tempting, calling me closer. But no! Stay away, your mom and your dad are finally proud of you."We're glad you didn't end up like your brother."

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.
Every day, Every party, Every line, Every shot, Every girl, Every pill, Every joke, Every poem,

There's something wrong with my head. I don't know what – Just that it's hurting. It doesn't usually feel so full That it's fit to bursting and burning.  
I’m drinking on this rooftop patio; bitters and absolut and citrus and vodka and ginger, something sweet to mask the alcohol, on the rocks, maybe in a champagne glass.
All I need is speed The adreniline in me not drugs, miles per hour
Along  time we  go. To where? I  do  not  know. But  swift is our motion, commotion, and conversation about timeless 
The time has come my friends, for stories to be told for bridges to be sold and hearts grow cold. Dark caresses between sweet fingers. These smoke rings I blow shatter the crisp clean air.
Intoxicated by the blood on your sleeve I can't look away at what a frightening scene you've clearly conceived. Abortion wasn't necessary when your ovaries spit out what may as well be your deadly diseases,

There was a month where I smelled like cigarettes.     You were the month that I tasted like misplaced jokes,                                        who's punch-line snaked around my jaw;
You told me I made you feel the way I feel when I draw circles under my tongue,                                     but I'm not very good with new concepts.Driving the nails into the coffin of my inhibitions,
As I walked out one damp night, reflecting neon lights, breathing in the heavy smoke, and breathing out my life.   Cracking earth beneath my feet,
At age 6 the world is full of adventure and fun and you can make friends just because you have a Barbie Jeep and Daddy's always proud of you and one day you're going to be the  first person on Mars  
The air reeks of the forgotten Slowly sinking, wasting Among them stand one One not just one but two One fades out the other fades in It looks like it’s one but its two

A life full of struggles is one that I lived, they started off mild, only a kid. Getting bad grades and making no friends, these are some struggles that I don't pretend.
No one Not even the rain Can quite feel my pain As I call out your name And its a shame That you left me in vain While I crawled on the floor leaving a small blood stain
My daddy loves me. Says my 2 year old self. My daddy is coming back. Says my 10 year old self. My daddy abandoned me. Says my 15 year old self. I never thought he would. But he did.
Where are you? I know... You are in a different city. Why did you leave? I know... Because I did somethign wrong. What did I do? I know... I wasn't good enough.
PUSH DOWN AND TURN. Something quickly learned. Sleep from a bottle. Happiness from a flask. Consume so much that I'm never coming back. Numb my senses. Fall in love with the drugs.
And I must confess
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?

You
Some nights I just wish
I'm lost and i been that way for so long, i bear the results of these years and i wear them as scars. Mistakes made and good intentions gone wrong,
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.  
College? What does it mean?  A lot of experiences? A simple routine?   The first year living on campus is always quite something. You make friends, relationships,  And even some enemies. 
*I have exceeded expectations and yet still i fall down. People will leave you and you'll think that's fine. follow me, soon you'll be all mine. when you try and get rid of me you will realise there's no hope.
*my Only Friend* I was the only one that really understood, when everyone else left, i gave you the gift of not giving a f***. I made you feel strong, wen infact you were weak. i helped you to disconnect,
The monster took over his mind. Leaving him with nothing but the thought of drugs. Everyday I lose more and more sight of him. Standing here by myself with no way to help. The monster became more important than me.
I know a girl who was raped RIpped from her concious state She was drugged. She was above the age of concent But still underage by the law. He was an adult. Guess that goes to show,
He put a razor inside my lunch pale Along with heads or tails I know he's hinting death As I hide behind my veil   Need a pair of clippers To cut my cutthroat nails And I red pair of scissors 
Smoke in my lungs, Raging monster coursing in crimson,
   We first met our second year of high school.
Have you ever seen anything so sad? Children run around half-naked while their parents wait for more pills to come to town. Teens walk around with cigarettes in their hands and alchohol in their systems.
Make a list of all the things in your house that can kill you.   Have you ever had someone tell you they love youand then tell you it was a lie? Abandonment seems to be the necessary process for existance. Bleach.
you were a bargain and now I'm in my car again
So tell me how you spent your family's money on cheap cigars you couldn't quit Tell me how you destroyed your room to mask the pain in your heart, but you couldn't forget
My Shrink is on Xanax 
  Self-medication,
Ghetto babies rap their own lullabies because mommy just can't seem to hush their screeching cries For the love that lies within the cracks of her arms that enjoy being kissed by the needle of her one true love
A faint mysterious cloud rolls overhead. Darkness comes along leaving room for regret.   Memories engulfed with tiny drops of rain, Slowly warning this is no ordinary day.  
I want for you to tell Christ That his quick glass is almost up And the moon’s light Shall gleam (shine) on all of the four corners Residing idly in the room Where the devious shadows lay
When your run burns out and no one is around
The truth wasn't true. The facts aren't the lies. The truth isn't true. The secrets are held in the eyes.  The truth will never be true. The evidence is something a great mother denies. 
In the begining,
Can you tie a cat knot?
Without a care in the world I stare at the lens in front of me,what has become me Behind the lens you will find the real me, not the one I appear to be It's inside out, without a twist of doubt whats becoming of me, you see
Deepest dark brown eyes bury your pain in me now my eyes will be deep
Daddies been out drinking, yet again
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:  
I was like a joint; your favorite thing.
You took an innocent girl and flipped her whole world around.
Quickly fading evergreen Losing life a dying tree Softly whispered hopeless dreams Sink into my mind and mix with the drink
Something evil with me walks 
We all have dreams, though most seem to never prosper We all are sinners, nothing can save this gospel The pigs we gobble, the devil we follow, the poisons we swallow, all lead to evil bethrothals
Where does the time go? 
Full blown addiction is eating when you are hungry.
You are the beast that has slowly stolen my soul. 
How are you just going to get up and leave like that? You're only seventeen, what are you gonna do with yourself now? You went from a child who tried in school to a girl smoking pot just to feel cool.
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
Up, up, and away searching for that thrill, Don't know where to find it relying on the pills. All I need is one more high to get me through my day, Oops here we are again huffing on spray paint.
Do you feel that?  That feeling of pure satisfaction and highness? Oh, how I love that feeling.  The feeling of the liquid being push into my viens, 
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
Notice all the old folks, hear them say What happened to the kids nowadays? Sitting on their ass, shorts way too high Lying, cheating with pants down to their thighs This is the age of the young, wild, and free
Nothing EPIC to write about, clean and sober. Wondering just how much longer until this hell is over. No visions of riches no dreams of fame, no delusions of grandger and nothings the same. The pounds I put on are supposed to be healthy.
I left her. Afraid scared and alone. My guardian angel needs me. I didn't know my heart was her home. I felt I could fight alone. But I proved I'm weak broken and a wreck. I didn't want her to see me use, I always hated that feeling of regret.
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,
I pop Xanax like it's candy, Because the doctors told me to keep it handy.  
You say you’ll try it once
I know that you have been locked in there   Where? You can't tell, locked is all you know  
Intoxication by substance,Abuse is a common word inA user's dictionary: vocabulary,Mundane feelings of pain,Take it all away.
The patterns of life are so lost Just fragments and reflections 20 bucks but no cost Kneel down and say your confessions   Once again I find my self
Kids are dying Younger and younger By their own hand They're being pushed to the edge And they can't return They feel alone And helpless And have no where to go How many kids have to die
i lost myself in my blanketed tomb scars on my wrist and pills on my tongue   couldn't breathe although i tried i tried and tried
I am toxic. Everything I touch I kill, and not in a poetic murder 
You left gane forever  Was it by accident or choice  No one will ever know You left behinde many people who care  You left me upset and scared Was it because you thought wed be better oof?
I turn on the news and all I see is ISIS this murder that immigration this
Got me addicted like novacane, sitting here numb without a feeling.Tried to retrace my steps with a little sexual healing.
When I used to look in the mirror, I would see A girl who struggled, but yet was sometimes pretty. I struggled with my relationship with my family. Although they clothed, fed, housed, and spoiled me,
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...
Sweet crimson Staining drops  Make the memories Crystal finds the glimmer In the darkness of this hole   Her fragile body Blackened by lethal injection
As I drive, watching my city streets roll past me I see the tear stained faces of broken homes And children being raised by strangers. I see the garbage cluttered streets of SE,
We hide behind a mask of lies To keep the truth from waving "hello" and "goodbye" But have you ever cried through blood shot eyes? Hit after hit, on that emotional high Have your lungs ever hurt so bad,
Late nights, early mornings Staying up for days How can you ever sleep? The drugs keep me sane Judge all you want   Finding myself with every hit How can I not love it?
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
I am in a room alone Full of friends here to help me  As they move place to place, I remain succombed to any new help or  change Because the small white ovals are already working to
Gypsies, hippies, mermaids,
You may not know me,
i wake up in the mornings with a smile on my face that is suddenly erased the moment i step foot onto my school campus the people that surround me couldnt give a damn about me
Maybe your narcotic battles can only be silenced by you
Minds are crippled from the so called cure. The doctor says "here take this" now people are passed out on the floor. Your friends think its fun to take, your parents think skipping doses might be a fatal mistake.
i never thought id be that girl who falls for bad boys but when i saw him my stomach churned from the anticipation of his enticing smirking mouth and deceiving blue eyes. when i spoke to him, 
Tea on a Sunday  evening Two young girls  hide behind their words their illustrations small talk eludes dark realities too afraid to address the monster in the closet
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,
1.  A lab report lays on the table, a chart with a name too familiar
Why you felt more confindent harassing me alone? You called us friends, because you thought it was funny to see me crumble. I only smiled because mouth had malfunction and fail to say STOP!
Have you ever felt that hollowness inside, That feeling that no one understands you? After hearing of emos and man-periods, The really not serious descriptions of depression,
he's a man but really he's sarcasm lanky, underfed, patched whole with drugs. he scares away crows but he doesn't scare me. I'll pay for this later. but sunsets sitting in a haze of
I'm hungry, but not for food Instead I'm hungry for the drugs that fill my stabbing emptiness Drugs that make me stop shaking, but only keep me waiting For someone to understand it's a part of me
I want to be heard,but I have no voice.
This poem is directed towards my eldest brother... who has been on a heavy drug addiction for the past year. He has a 5 year old son who he barely sees and has got himself in a lot of trouble with the law. Hour Glass of Tracks

your slowly intoxicating my head no words can describe what has been to my brain, fed your slowly intoxicating my mind arguing with myself wether your feeling is healthy, or if im blind.
Sitting in this car I can’t move my hands. Go check my facebook, I bet I have some fans Sat me in this chair, ready to tell my story. Before I said a word their jokes told it for me.

What happened to back in the day, when the grown men would teach the younger ones to behave. But now we look around, and men of all ages and races have their pants to the ground. But thats my generation.  
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
What makes me tick?  What doesn't!
The strongest man endures the darkest days But to endure does not mean that he simply Takes And
You were different
Where did you go?
Growing up- Broken- BeatenActing like nothings wrongCan't you see I'm crying- hurting?Acting out just to see your longface staring back at me.See that look in your eyesHow much you wish that

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.

I'm the man in the sky  I watch you with my hazy eyes Take my hand I'll set you free Step into my reality   Here there ain't a ceilin' with walls
Take a bite of the poison It’s the fate that you’ve chosen   Eat it slow, swallow fast
The point of this is to be heard Among a crowd, one reads my word My story and struggle one must listen
  Despair. That look in a mothers' eye.
I think I'm gonna be sick But it's not because I took a hit It's because of the way I felt I don't feel that way anymore I stopped loving and you started 
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
Yes, You are a drug to me, a sweet live shock to my veins. Your after taste so bittersweet, Your always on my brain. I yearn for that heavenly necture, Just to hear Your voice.
If a child throws a fit in the store,  If a man drinks, drives, and wrecks,  If the rainforests are being depleted, 
Causing my brain to diminish or maybe my mind really is going or is my mental health truly my own worst enemy.

Like a puppet with ripped strings I hang limp from a tree that is rooted in bad seeds. I have no direction and no recollection of anything but the present. Everything else is blocked out and I always want to shout.
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
My chapped lip is split 
Not everything works Like it used to when We were young Disease fills us Disorders rot our minds and We’re never cured Anxiety creeps up Fire that you ignore but Can’t put out

Backround: The girl’s family has had a lot of problems. Still trying to find her way, she has to deal with her family’s problems and mistakes daily.  
She stands on the corner, barely 18 Hasn't showered in days but waits Waits for a man who needs an illegal touch The body of an adolescent becomes tainted She looks for independence on an incredibly tight leash
Enhale toxins. It numbs.
The Animal inside has changed Grown timid from the drugs The light bearer gives once
Is it because me and my gurl dropped out Our sophmore year of high school, for becoming 16 yr. parents? Was it us taking that risk? Or was it life we decided to miss?

  My images were distorted, a played out fiction book of torn pages and darken memories. A scripture that I will never forget,
  Crips and Bloods, robbers and killers. Crips and Bloods, murders and stealers.
Red is the color of the sun as it rises, warm and spreading across his face. Blue is the color of his eyes, the same as yours, as he looks up to you with pride.
You'll never know How desperately I always wanted to grow up When my parents wouldn't let me act up Only telling me to hush up, Cause the kid I was, was never good enough.
The alleyways are littered with broken bottles Bleeding amber liquid A fixer Another boy pulls the trigger  And paints the dirt with Something blue  
Today is Friday. The paper doesn't come on Fridays,
John, you were young and free,Fearlessly you fought when you did not agree.You were reckless to a fault,Had your knowledge come to a halt?
You saved 'em from the knife, from the pills, from the booze From slaughtering a beauty and all they had to lose All it took to rescue was a few innocent words A reassuring smile was the most clearly heard
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 can smoke all you want, the high won't last enough to taunt. Snort it all up your nose, you know how fast it goes. Inject it into your arm as if it won't do any harm.
I turn on the shower head along with my thoughts Which are often not my thoughts at all My mind has been infiltrated by society's thoughts And everything it has taught Should I really be distraught about all this?

Slept in again? My night habits are getting the best of me And you're not the man I imagined you'd be when I was young. I can't just blink the fatigue away; I sit there for a minute.
What's on my mind? What about what's in my heart? What makes it bleed and break, cry out in despair, what makes me try and want to rip out my hair.   What I think about when it gets dark,
It’s time we change, isn’t it?
Life's a party,  One you can never leave. So live it up, break it down, and never regret anything you do. Because in the end, it makes you who you are.
You had it together, Remember? Your fate comes  From a pharmacy.  Sanity is for no one; For you. Why must you Insist? Insistance? Dependancy. Infantile attempts at
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.

The wait was always the hardest, Once I got a hold of you, My heart raced with anticipation, Of the feeling of you. Your eyes were the flame, The flame that heated the spoon,
When you pass down the streets in Chicago, Cleveland, and Atlantic City, you see it in their eyes. They’re not yet sixteen, acting eighteen, Driving their moms up a wall when they don’t come home for supper.

If I had the power to change only one thing I would know the answer without having to think I would stop all the innocent from being slaughtered Their blood staining the world with red

My stomach growls and hisses Each breath I take angers the pits of my belly My intestines secretes restlessly its enzymes Urging me to feed.   The beaten path that lays before me
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!
I sent for God To pass me another shot              With another round of rum From his cup overflowed My alcoholic messiah Sick of sobriety Sick, I drowned sobriety

When we all were in elementary school We were told “drugs are bad” We could recite all their effects We could tell you how they would kill We could tell you what would happen To your abused body
A scruffy young man observes in the corner;
Alone in white she stands, tounge knoted whlile she clasps her shakey hands, Lies pour out of their mouths iike rocks in a dirty waterfall, she gets tossed around like a used up ragdoll.
          Is it that easy? You shoot up, the pants come down. You get your money’s worth. I’ll leave the gain. Rusty lemon types, sour and boney. Like larvae, comfortable and worry-free. Days tick tick, living under a spell.
I sit here, alone. Eyes set to the ceiling; thinking, too much. not enough.  Clock ticks, sand grains fall. slowly, fast, whatever. Sleep doesn't come, eyes never move.  Open, close, who knows. 
She’s a beautiful girl- beautifully broken that is. And each breath she draws
Living with this darkness. Always weighing me down. Thinking dark thoughts; wandering around this strange and lonely town. Can't get rid of this depression; seems like any hope I once held is coming to an end.

6:50 AM and my alarm begins to buzz Every day I rise to attend school but instead many kids my age devout their lives to drugs Open your eyes; you may see them in the streets without any shoes on their feet
I'm high in the skyFloating up like a feather
 
Kids are becoming thugs, don't you see them doing drugs? See them, smell them, almost taste it on your tongue.
These greatest years of our life and what do we take with us?
  Like an old toy, Waiting to be played with again. Collecting dust, Thrown in a ben,   Taking up space in my room Only fond memories prevent its doom.   But you’re not a toy.
Everything, everything, everything,
I walk into this empty hearted hall. My steps heavy, my chest hollow. My core shakes with mourning... Nobody knows I am forever stuck in tergiversation. I stand before myself, under siege with my reflection,
I'm a 17 year old girl from Brooklyn. When I tell people that I don't say it with a smile. Instead I frown. I look down at the ground that I walk on everyday in Brooklyn I fear for my generation

I walk down the hallway and see you standing there. 
You see the smile plastered on her lips, dripping a story with a twist. Lies escape with every phrase, across your ears. You believe it's the truth she's laid. She seems like the perfect student, perfect girl; every strand without a curl.

You're liquid And fire And everything I've ever wanted   You're pain My misery You move me like the waves never could   Teeth like silver blades Eyes like poisoned honey

Walking the streets with my head hung low. I feel so bad it seems I've lost my way,
She wore red velvet; redder than velvet was her heart. Gone were the nights of regret, she learned to cope with it. She wore black leather; blacker than leather was her hair.
McKenzie picked her poison quite a while ago. She never paid for drugs; instead they were her pain killers. They were an opportunity to pacify her demons. When she was high, she had no past, no present, no future.
He’d always wondered where she kept her wings. And he questioned where she hid her horns. He could never find feathers on her boney, bare back and he couldn’t feel spikes
I see you, It clouds your mind,  and you try to hide, what is inside.   Attached to it, Can't let go, Refuse the help, The need has grown.   You look at them,
They say that time waits for no man. But innate yourself and hold my hand. Allow me to teach you right from wrong and catch you when you fall. No one I've encountered had such beautiful eyes and a mind full of vision I need in my life.
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
Narrow is the passage that leads to your heartAnd as I search for your loveI never come close nor am I ever good enough to have itI'm still stuck out hereAnd looking in, I can see itAll that love that once was
Hi new friend Tell me how ya doin’ Very pleased to meet you My name is Influence Do you believe in me? I’m sure you don’t But I’ll show you some things Your parents won’t!
  A certain level of joy when in love One tragedy breaks the pure bliss So easy:  falling in love But is it truly worth it
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.
  It has been days since you cared about anything. My only wish is to be loved by you. Loved more than those circular pills that hide in delicate capsules.  I cannot give you what you want.
She's beautiful.She drinks, smokes and parties all night every time she can,No one has truthfully told her she's beautiful, She thinks she's not worth it, 
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,
she would leave days at a time and leave me alone to care for them a mother i wasnt but it was a mother they needed   away she went to her world of drugs and away i would go to my world of love
Chaotic My mind Spinning, telling, lying How to convey? Thoughts   Joslyn My friend Clawing, straining, losing The war on drugs lost   Words For her
A virgin innocence beams under the spot light, shushed as the speakers buzz. A flurry of question bury the noise and a voice rises above. A blanket of awe wraps itself around the shiny toy.
A virgin innocence beams under the spot light, shushed as the speakers buzz. A flurry of question bury the noise and a voice rises above. A blanket of awe wraps itself around the shiny toy.
Listen to the wind hear the song of the dead watch them swaying along the border   They fight for plants a high like no other welcome to Mexico land of the dead  
Normal is a horribly ugly word It imprisons the people it labels takes beauty and cages the bird Diaries make for lonely companions yet here I write my darkest words As the shadows on the wall mimic phantoms
TEARS, rolled down our faces as we said bye to our mother ANGER, seethed from us as someone tried to replace her LIES, were poured into us that it could be fixed YEARS passed and we moved on and were reunited
I remember the things i would do just to get high. A trade here, a borrow here, an i owe you one to its for something important. Just to get high. Meeting strangers, sex for drugs, drugs for sex. Just to get high.
Word to the Wise:
As a teenager, time and time again, I am asked the question, "want a drink?" My response to the request always catches the others by surprise. Do I want a drink? To me, this question is so much more.
Dose after dose, taking me under. try to walk, I make a blunder. Down steep steps, my journey is nearing its end. Is there hope....for me?
brown hands that hold burned finger tips and tear drops that fall silently insidewith these words, can i give you love?with these words, can i be that handkerchief to keep them dry?
i take a trip to the beach at nightlet the sand pinch my toes and when the wind blows i get criticized for low eyes,
I WRITE TO SPEAK OUT!
Always Looks Clear Over Here, but really Only I'm Lost
LSD
Acid rain Crawling through your twisted veins Stealing the eyes that used to see The other side.   Now I've tried  I've opened my mind  To an endless possibility 
The time I  had a fever of a hundred-and-three, was when Ariel went out to sea. I was discussing with Prince Eric and Ursula about tea. The Mad Hatter's party was fun as can be, but the only thing horrid was the tea.

Hey Dylan, I’ve been here for you for a while now. But for 19 years straight, you’ve been nothing but a villain. Your love toward me, you disavow.   I didn’t do anything to deserve this. With each puff,
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
                     
Fire, light, inhale. Breathe, obsorb the poison. Deep breath, obsorb the smoke. Feel The Addiction Take Over. Breathe, obsorb the pain. Deep breathe, obsorb the cancer. Feel The Addiction Take Over.
ShatteredLittle droplets of my heartSplatter on the floorMixed with splintersOf my sanityI grasp the edgeAs I sinkMelting under thePressureA spoonful of acidReplacing the sugar
Answers aren't at the bottom of a whiskey bottle, But misery is.   You're just a child whose been hurt, And the world has hardened your heart.
Oh when the drugs wear out and the crash kicks in painful glares pierce through yout thick skin and it all comes down  to who you are with in not who you try to be, just to fit in
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.
I'm whiskey and sadness poured into a shot-glass Swallowed down for the burn so you can know how long your esophagus is. I am lost loves and hung-out hopes with the sweet notes of rum on your tongue.
Get Em Get Em Get Em Party Party Party Cups stacked along the corners of a torn house Aligned like a house of cards, fragile Reeking of booze, alcohol Oops spilled some on the floor
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.
We drove through the evening blueness at a rapid pace, streetlights and buildings blurring to join the smear of stars. The moon was a sliver, the smirk of a watchful stranger given to those who glance uneasily his way.
I will change, you say But do you know what that means? Are you really a man? Go ahead, hit her again. Maybe she will stay. Maybe she will forgive you. No no, not this time!
Allow me to set the scene Mother of four One of the most faithful dope fiends To the Four admired as a queen The oldest only 16 Father figure to the youngest 3 No help offered Because she aint clean
as i look upon my heart i notice all the deviations some of which were mine to start others were miscreated
I lay here writing the words I can't say And the longer my mind fights wondering and wanting to say hey- And the longer we go without a word, this becomes a never ending day
I am falling in the breeze I am choking with no ease I am whispering in your arms I am holding your poor heart
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
Denial. That was the first reaction. Frozen: in a dead-locked stare with a fluorescent, empty bottle. Panic hit me like a whip across the face.
My best friend was the bottle. My brother was the smoke. I lived it up real good Before life caught up and choked Me out of my mind. And now I see That I was killin' myself. Now all that I need
The fire in those eyes brings me to sudden silence, The darkness beckons deeply; threatens to turn violent. Life inside that mind must be eternal pain, every word spoken as if it is in vain.
He was brought up in finest pride, Desire matched all gifts, Seized more than all a soul could need, Much more than ever dreamed.
He laid there in his bed Motionless, clinging to life by one single thread His memories reflecting through his eyes If only he had the chance to give one last goodbye So tired and broken, frail and worn out
A young boy on his own Thought he had no control Felt like he was spiraling down Falling, rocketing toward the ground
All I saw were lights flashing on my face, Where am I going? What is this place? Two men grabbed my body and lifted me off the floor, And hurriedly rushed me out the front door.
It's One in the morning and the Family be snoring I'm On the bed thinking Sleeping is boring I had some coffee I think had three cups Or maybe I need to re-up Cus the weed is my Nyquil
Deep moans drift in the room. Liquid hunger screams from my veins. Acid leaks from my lips. Agony drips from my head. I am wounded, and all I want is more. more of her to heal my pain,
I look out across the dingy city. Towers loom over the filthy streets, the roads, broken, have no destination, and the street signs, blank, give no direction.
Untamable This space is cold The name I chose became the main chain-reaction to maintain with a brain too strange for the average face to smile at so brace and don't hate just cope I came to hold
addiction you run through my veins and consume my body with a vengeance you take over me and leave me with no control just the vision of my downfall for my temporary happiness
My father reeks of leather and old books I love to smell that scent while we tattle Society may call us paranoid shnooks But we know they are only mere cattle No good times do I know of my young years
She takes the needle, shoves it into her veins. Cries out for the sweet relief, gives into the call of the heroin. Life becomes tough, becomes too much. She throws away everything,
(poems go here) What is a mother? What is my mother? What is she? Can someone tell me? No, well mom you tell me Tell me, what I am supposed to see? Is it perhaps love? Well no it cannot hun
Relief. That sharp sting lasts a second. The vein inflates. A hum of anticipation. The cello winds through the body, seeping through the eyelids and turning an eye blind. The piano means no harm.
Just one more drink you told me Just one more pill you said I wake up every morning And expect to find you dead
From a bench I watched them walk, all in a line, the exertion of emotion dripping from each individual pus-filled, black-headed pore, twitching and moaning like dead men with gaping mouths and scarlet tongues
The door slams and my heart hurts The inexplicable feeling of dread that permeates through my body as I hear another door shut The sound is a trigger; the sound sends me back into countless times before
They say we're a drug school, but thats only halfway true. They try to stay cool when they hear, "Hey, you!" But when its not them, they continue.
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
RIP
20 and 21 So young, without cares. She drove too fast He hurt too much Unexpected... Death- something we avoid Something we escape They didn't They couldn't
At a crawfish boil I cannot fully make peace With myself because I have frequent flashbacks Of spring break in April of 2005 when I waited for my big Sister Tori in that red and yellow sunset For 3 days straight
I lost someone To a life of the unloved Someone who brought untold limits I lost someone to the heavens above
Pain…I must complain, it’s killin’… my brain Sore…doc, what’s the cure…Son, there’s nothing…more. Defeat…bruised and beat… that’s how we’ll…meet.
I miss the innocence in elementary 
 when we were k-i-s-s-i-n-g 
in a tree, you and me, 
because I’d rather worry about cooties than an STD. 
You see,
 when a boy liked a girl, he could almost guarantee
I see faces pass me by. Faces that I used to know but they’re all strangers to the strange--they don’t know the world I know. I hear their voices, a whisper in my ear, telling me all the things I don’t want to hear.
you're curious , so you try it one time . you can't keep falling down the crack line . you keep falling deeper & deeper until you reach the bottom , see strange things that you never thought possible .
I am from the rolling hills of Scotland, I am from the white sand beaches of Spain, I am from fighting, tears, and divorce, I am from a broken home, I am from vicious custody battles,
My slowly beating heart was ripped into shreds by your dirty hands. That black balloon lifted you up again and wouldn't let your mind fall back to the ground.
She used to be an innocent girl But the devil has changed her Staring in a mirror The reflection is a stranger She yells out to God With tears running down her cheek Praying to become strong
Plush, Red, Pulse Thick, Smooth, Blood Bouncing To the constant beat Pulse Pound Pulse Somewhat sterile swords stab Through your gates Injecting foreign troops
You extracted all the good from your heart, and injected yourself into my veins. As your love flowed through me I was overcame with a surge of euphoria, a rush so powerful it left my palms sweaty and my mouth dry.
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
I'd show him what he asked for If he called me beautiful, I'd take another shot If I could prove that I'm fun, I'd agree we were "just messing around" If I could feel his love On a night like tonight,
What if you got tired of breathing? What if your next breath was just as painful as the last? Would it make you faint? Would you still wake and bake? Alot of you kids Don't realize the fate you make
Large boulders of smoke roll down your throat and coat your breath with the smell of false happiness. Yellow stained fingers cover a frequent cough. You sound more and more like your dog as the days pass.
tell me if those rappers never promote drugs would you be taking them? have you ever asked your self is this really who i am? tell me what good do you get from those songs ?
I live my life by a code To never get drunk nor high, But people think me queer or rude. My code exiles me from the cliques, Never invited to outings or parties, Never asked to stand in the student body.
I should ink my skin with your name as a permanent reminder of the places you've kissed our bodies melted together a clay sculpture two beings one body molded together
You’re screaming at me but I'm not there to hear it. I'm drifting away on fluffy white clouds as my world melts around me like a Dali painting and my fingers leave patterns in a sea of stars.
He was the color of tan skin untouched by winter's sun,but the blizzard lives on in his eyes.He uses the weed to get high because it's the only way for him to get up in the morning without her touch.
I lie on the floor gasping bsp; “I said not to touch me, you’ll kill me” I won’t die “DON’T TOUCH ME” She left. She killed me but she left. No more wracking pleasure Silence.
I'm feeling high tonight. Not sure what it's from Could it be these pills? Maybe these cheap thrills. I can't be sure. Where's my waldo? Is he in my dream? My friends, I don't know.
He told me: "It'll burn like nothing you've ever felt Don't cough or sneeze or do anything but swallow the drip. And you'll feel like a god. I swear you will." So he rolled up the bill
I get it now. All the rock and roll artists they don't do it to cover depression or to fit an image. Simply this: it fuels your muse I know what the world means. Only I don't want to know
Strap me to the machine and inject me with your facade. It's the best we've ever seen. It's the best they ever saw.
Brilliance was burned away We drank away our thoughts Gambled which would stay and which would go, We didn't know.
Let me fall into the hole I dug There is a pipe and lighter waiting, Marijuana and a bottle of Irish Cream Don't wanna surface
I'm not quite here, not quite alive, not fully functional, fading into wisps of what I was once upon a yester-year. Feel like I am crashing from a glorious high that I can never have again.
Hard, hard shell. Hard shell; Outer layer Darkness hate bitterness All one, wrapped up; Me. Build it up, build it close; it's you.
She sipping on some lean. Popping all of them pills. Smoking a bunch of weed. While i just try to sit back and breath. She said its just to much stress to leave. And drugs separate her from realness.
All my life - I've been trying to find Such a beautiful place, Like the one in my mind. Somewhere that no one else can trace. Now here I am Standing in front of it, Not giving a damn,
Lost In a sea of students Flying low Below the radar of the teachers So low Evading the eyes of my parents Sliding Deeper and deeper into the darkness Alone
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,
I. CONVICTION Littered street corners blend with the falling snow like ash against skin Their chants ring in my ears as the cold air clings and my skin burns.
Caw, caw, caw! The crow goes. Boom, boom, boom! My heartbeat grows.   I stare at my window Waiting, waiting. Fear enveloping my mind and soul.
thinking of a message a message clearly drafted in your writing "I miss you, dearly" trying not look up or give a smidgen of any of these feelings I'm not taking they're just given
It's been a while since we've had our fix Our release from this world were livin in Our Place of solitude just to take that hit To enter a dimension of ecstasy within.
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?
it’s 12:34 and i guess i’m just a sack of skin caffeine replacing my endorphins my happiness is busy she’s gone, running out my nose and streaming out of my eyes and
When I think of you I say, What happened to the way You looked at me You talked to me Or how to acted around me
A mother surcomes to a metal piece of evil... She is addicted to something so powerful, It grasps her every desire Burning every decision
Deep in these streets Where it's easy to lose One's self without warning Where all hell ensues Where death is dealt Day to day From one hand to the other In a sneaky way Where moms run amok
"Inhale the good Exhale the bad" These words are spoken.. as they rise to a dream of a life they wish they had I try to understand.. Why there is such a strong need for this thing known as "weed".. Or..
There was a boy, a boy I once knew. He wasn't the best, according to you. Yes, he sold drugs; crack and weed too, but no one would judge him, not like you do.
Her
Broken bottles on the floor Cocaine dispersed out on the table Needle punctured in her arm As her mind remains unstable
I watched you destroy your life I could’ve said something, I should’ve said something. But no, I said nothing… Did nothing. Instead I watched you throw it all away. You had a future ahead of you.
The first time I held you In my arms I chose To love you Unconditionally Even though You were Tragically addicted At only Four precious days old.
One can never see what goes on behind closed doors. All you have is the insight from a young, bright-eyed girl, who just wants a chance. A typical suburban family is not all as it seems.
Fake chains and white Tee's, pants hang low to our knees, but we got to keep making this cheese, So we surviving up our own community, WE, chop that crack, WE, sell that weed, WE,
Here goes the under goer bypassing and shedding skin into new light that was only evident between seas of shadow. But as oppose to the useless struggle traveling into void of confusion.
