Poem About Missing Drugs

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.
