Addiction short poem

Photo by Jan Tik

I know,I just know…
..If I abuse I will be gone gone gone gone.
More than a junkie, you can’t see it.
I crave worse than narcotics. (I would trade this for being an alcoholic)
Tragic? yeah it is tragic.
Made a mistake talking to her
Now addicted to her.
You pop pills to escape,
This pitch darkness.
Don’t even start with the lights.
‘Cause… this ain’t a tunnel it feels like a deep end.
But you keep saying this is not the end.
Whatever floats your boat
I am in limbo.
I am not dead but I am not alive either.
We wanna rescue each other but we are in the same sinking boat.
God damn.
No hope for the needy, just hope the greedy.
I talk that talk, but I am always
Down for the fix whenever I am depressed.
Now that I am about to
abuse I know that I am gone gone gone gone (done done…).
Now you know, I just wanted you to know.

Addiction & Subtraction

Addiction & Subtraction short poem

I am a lost soul, Half of a whole. Don’t really fit, Can’t seem to quit. Too soft for life, Too tough to die, A cage-less bird afraid to fly. Shrinking from a faceless fear, Risking all that I hold
