Addiction Poem about Family

Drug Addicts Poem

I am a recovering addict. Although I miss it at times, just the thought of never using again scares me, but what scares me more is missing the feeling of love with my kids.

Missing The Feeling

©

Published: October 2008

Wake up wanting and needing heroin.
Go to bed wanting and needing heroin.
90 days clean and I am missing the feeling
Rushing through my veins like comets in the sky
Eyes closing, head nodding low
No pain to feel, no pain to worry about
Life runs on while I fly on
The dreams of using getting to me more and more
90 days clean and I am missing the feeling
Rushing through my veins like comets in the sky
When I am bored that is the worst
Thoughts start running through my head
Questions of the reason I gave it up
Questioning myself, is this what I really want
90 days clean and I am missing the feeling
Rushing through my veins like comets in the sky
Then it hits me why I decided to stop
I want to live to see my kids grow old.
I want to live to love and to care again
90 days clean and I will always miss that feeling.
