Crystal Meth. - Poem by JOSE MURGUIA

hi crystal how you been?
it's me your ex from way back then,
i remember how you made me feel,
do you remember how i almost got killed,
there where times you made me rob and steal,
i would stay up and look for you all night,
there where times i would argue and fight,
sometimes i wouldn't get a wink of sleep,
just waiting for you to come and creep,
you made me imagine things that weren't there,
i thought you loved me but in reality you didn't care,
when i almost overdosed you weren't there,
i got real skiny and pail and people just stared,
my mouth was dry and i couldn't eat,
there where times when i just thought you brought me to defeat,
we should have broken up years ago,
but for some reason i just couldn't let go,
you took away everything to a point
where there was almost nothing left,
but i'll never forget your first or last name crystal meth....

    you made me imagine things that weren't there,

    I donot know if there is a man or a woman who breathes and has not once in life been 'defeated' in love. But if there is one, s/he has not known a whole dimension of life. For, pain, as it can cripple, can also open unknown galleries of experience and sensitivity. Sometimes, one cannot rate a poem, because one cannot have an objective view of it. I can just say thanks very much for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Well Jose, I like the rhythem and the subject. I hope you are sincere in staying away from this stuff. I only have heard about these drugs, but never did any so I don't know how hard it is to stop. I just pray that you have defeated this monster. Good message for anyone who would dare to think about doing. I reallly like the way you composed the poem, a very good write. Your friend Lynn. (Report) Reply

    You send out an urgent message to those who have even 'thought' about using this horrible stuff. I've heard terrible stories and seen some who got sucked into this nightmare. Good for you for stopping it and sending the message. '10+++! '

    Warm Wishes,
