    • By Lowell Aguirre
    • 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.

    Poem To My Meth Addict Husband

    You act like I know nothing about it, but I know enough.
    I know what it has done to you, I know what it's done to us.
    You're no longer a real person, more like a puppet on a string.
    Every single move you make is controlled by methamphetamine.
