  1. 21. Lost Time

    This poem is about how my life drastically changed from drug use in just 5 months. Everyone has a chance to change their life for the better. Making people proud of your recovery is the best high there is.

    The power of addiction is a horrible disease.
    You make think it relieves pressure,
    Or bring pain to ease.

  3. 22. Vortex Of Anxiety

    I have struggled with addiction my whole life, a continuous roller coaster ride of relapse and recovery. Unfortunately more relapse than recovery. I am on a waiting list for rehab now and hope this is my last fallout. I have lost everything except my life and have often wondered why life isn't the first thing that I lost.

    Lost within the maze of my own mind,
    Swimming in circles, trying to leave it all behind,
    A mask in disguise trying to mask my demise.
    Within the truth there are no lies.

  5. 23. The Life Of Addiction

    This was my life battling an addiction to alcohol/meth and pills. I have now been sober for a little over 4 years, and as I read back on my poems, I realize just how precious my life is today and how thankful I am that God delivered me out of my own hell.

    So many emotions, it's out of control.
    What have I done? Have I sold my soul?

    The price is steep, and there's nothing to gain.

  6. 24. Razor's Edge

    This is a story about me and my ex boyfriend's drug addiction. We broke up when he got sent to a four-year rehab for meth and cocaine addiction. I hope this can speak to others.

    It sits on the razor's edge,
    A tear, crimson within itself.
    I sit there, constantly reminded of you.
    This was our thing,

    I wake up in the morning, see you're not there.
    By 10am I feel sick, I need you my dear.
    Why can't I have you all the time.
    I need you. It hurts me it makes me cry.

    I have the same problem. Every time I wake, all I think about is nicotine.

  8. 26. King Cocaine

    I wrote this poem to show the arrogance of an addict. No matter how dismal the situation may be an addict can convince him or herself that things ain't that bad. You cannot scare an addict because an addict has no fear. Even when we see our friends die of overdoses we still think it won't happen to us.

    King Cocaine has come out smoking,
    I've taken hit after hit.
    It's plain to see he's not joking,
    And it's obvious I should to quit.

    You think it's cool when you get high.
    You don't even see the things that go by.
    Time flies when you're having fun.
    But one day your body can't handle

  10. 28. I Need Your Support

    I’ve had many (maybe too many) times where I chose the poison. Maybe it was a guy, a drink, my depression, food... and the people around me, most of them just told me what I should or shouldn’t be doing when all I needed was support. If you know someone struggling, hold them, love them, tell them they are strong. Support them, believe in them and trust that it will pass. Hold them along the journey.

    This is my drowning,
    my teeth sinking
    into sour apples
    and I’m not hiding
