Addiction Poem

A wonderful friend who lost his life for a stupid night of drinking

Drunk Driving

© Amber
If I knew you were going I would have done a lot more,
but I didnít see until recently and now youíve closed the door,
I would have told you that I love you and how I need you so,
to keep my life going but now youíll never know,
you kept hanging out with bad people,
you were easily slipping away.
And it all ended, on this unfaithful day
for you went to a party and you drank and drank and drank.
And you got into a car with some dirty skank.
You turned the key in the ignition, put the pedal to the floor.
You were going to fast, and now youíre here no more.
Why did you drink and drive?
Didnít your mother tell you it was bad?
Didnít she tell you that if you did, it would make everyone so sad?
You killed yourself in that stupid car and now your gone,
youíve gone too far for I canít see your lovely smile or your beautiful face.
I canít hear your wonderful voice.
I can feel no more grace.
After school I took the long way home,
I walked so slow I just wanted to be alone.
Bad things were running through my mind,
I just couldnít get you out of my head,
Well I thought, this is the end.
Iím so selfish, so unkind.
I took a knife into my room and sild it along my wrists,
got out a photo of you and gave you a kiss.
I laid there for hours, just waiting to die.
My friends were all that I could think of and all could do is cry.
ďOh My GodĒ What have I done Iíve left everyone!
I tried to sit up, I tried to yell out to but I was too weak, it was too late.
This is the end, this is my fate
Iím sorry mum, Iím sorry dad.
Donít be sad, please donít be mad.
As my breathing got shorter as I held his picture tight,
and I laid there on my bed and died there that very night.
