Addiction Poem

Fighting with Dope, Fighting against a Demon

Icy Hell

© S Raine
Looking forward with fear I stare.
I face the mirror to see there.
I've lost my family, my friends are few.
You've controlled my life but now I'm through.
I'm finally strong enough to fight.
By myself I'll make this right.
I've lived in Hell with my demon.
I've done your deeds a life of scheming.
All I've loved I've lost no hope.
All that's left is you and dope.
Seeing life smoked through a glass.
To erase the memories from my past.
With every hit I kept you strong.
I've stayed weak for far to long.
I'm taking back all you stole.
My life, my love, my world, my soul.
Today's the day I leave this jail.
So take your demon and go to Hell.
The End

  • I love poems about recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction. While in treatment in 1990 I also wrote a goodbe poem to my drug of choice.(Cocaine) Till this day "Goodbye Mister Cocaine" remains one of my favorite poems. Keep up the good work and keep telling your disease to go to Hell
