This is a poem submitted by a reader of the site, Jaysenda Boyd. She was addicted to the needle and wrote this while in rehab. When I last heard, she was 9 months clean :)
Sometimes the shortest poems are the most powerful. Particularly with drug use, a lot of abstract and misguided language can retract for the message. This is a straight up poem about meth - if you've been there, you get it.
Pleasure and Pain,
It sounds strange.
But it always leaves you wanting more,
Your arms are sore.
But you yearn for that prick...
A instant rush. It's lust!
Always looking for a vien...
But its worth the pain, t
Tat heat you feel to your feet,
The cough when you know you get off.
