Till Meth Do We Part


Published: December 2008

I have a love for meth that no one can understand.
And nothing in this world can make me feel the way she can.
Since the first time I met her I knew she was the one.
Never questioning or judging me despite the things I've done.
No matter what I'm going through, I know she's always there.
Like two peas in a pod, I think we make the perfect pair.
When I'm with her, I'm invincible, having not the slightest fear.
She fills my head with lies, so my problems seem to disappear.
And sometimes she leaves me lonely, so much I've wished for death.
And fills me with diabolical voices who scream madness in my head.
But like I said before and repeat but once again,
No one understands unless they've been through where I've been.
On the brink of insanity filled with anger, rage, and hate.
On the path of a dead man or another prison inmate.
But be that as it may, either prison life or death,
Nothing will ever break this bond of love for my darling Crystal Meth.
And as she slowly takes my life I bid farewell goodbye.
But you can bet your bottom dollar on my deathbed I'll be HIGH!

My name is Lowell Aguirre I am the author of this poem it has been 6 yrs. Since I wrote this. I've been locked up for 3 and a half years. I have since given my life to God. Christ is my real true love now. I have no desire to get high anymore. No one was a bigger method monster than me but I've been given a second chance by God. If you are an addict I am living proof there is life after meth.

I have been performing your piece alongside "My Name is Meth" by Alicia Van Davis for forensics this year. Your story is so inspiring, especially considering you have come to God. Thank you so much!

My son is addicted. He has yet to admit his addiction. He has stolen from us lied to us and threatened us. He was always this young funny loving kid. Now he seems so full of hatred and anger. I must admit that lately my husband and I have been more jumpy. But I love him so much I don't know how to help him and I want to because I know somewhere in there is still my little boy.

I'm in recovery and the one thing I learned no matter how much you want an addict to stop you can't unless they want it. The more you push on the subject the more they are going to go out and do it.

My Ex started out using ecstasy fun drugs moved on to Cat and then got involved with Crystal Meth. He was the sweetest, kind and loving Partner and father to my son. Until He met Crystal! We were together for almost 7 years! Inseparable! But crystal changed our lives as she overtook his mind, body and soul, he turned into Somebody that didn't even know anymore! He lied, deceived and even stole to get his high! When the abuse started, I became afraid, could see the Aggression in his eyes and left him many times. I would return as I loved him, I could see how crystal started controlling him and there was nothing I could do but walk away as he loved her so much he was in denial that he was addicted. After 16 months of walking away! I still feel sad to think of how Crystal has destroyed Our relationship, Broken our bond and my sons heart as he has lost a father and I have lost the love of my life. We Are of no existence to Him ! All that Matters Now is CRYSTAL !!

To the one who wrote this reply, you wrote something I believe is a poem that's true straight from the heart and ends with a lot of people heartbroken from your love and feeling cheated on.

You don't have to be the addict to suffer from addiction. I lost the life I once had because of the drug. I had to quit school and my job and move back home to completely start over from even less than what I had when I started. Not because I had a bond with the drug but because even I couldn't break the bond that my loved one had with it. Ole crystal meth was there before me and as far as my loved one was concerned she would be there when I was gone. True enough but her "love" was far different from mine in that it was lethal.

Thank you for writing this! Both of my brothers had an affair with crystal meth, one of them didn't make out alive and the other one struggles everyday. They tried to explain it to me, and the poem you wrote sounds exactly like what they said. Thank you for your honest feelings and for sharing them. It helps to try to understand why he has trouble getting away from it. Meth is tricky and evil, I hope you beat it!

This poem is so painfully truthful and real about Meth Addiction. My first date with her was at age 11, I'm now 43. She has always been the Love Of My Life. Always there and never lets me down, excepted me for me, and had no other needs or wants, just ME!... She has been a very toxic relationship! Living with her and Bipolar Disease has been a challenge, and continues to be. Just another wasted life, tragic but true. She's highly jealous and controlling. Took me away from all my friends and ALL my family... Parents, kids, everyone is gone, but she still remains strong and solid by my side!

I have been addicted to meth since I was 16.. I am now 23 with a beautiful daughter. though I know I want different for my daughter, I struggle every day with that knowledge that at any moment I could go back to how I was... My thoughts and prayers go out to those who suffer the same struggles everyday.

My parents are drug addicts and I don't know why. But this poem helped me understand a little more.

I can really relate to this because I know him very well he is my sons father and I've been thru everything with him. he is very talented and I can assure you his love for meth is still there even though he is now in jail. I hope he keeps writing and stays sober.

This poem has touched me. I have always had a soft spot for drug abusers as it's a choice that they make and now, that they are hooked find it hard to go back to being clean. We all make mistakes, but drugs just seem that little harder to get over. I offer prayers to drug abusers and say... 'One day it will end, just like a bad dream'....
