The Codine Illness...

How would you feel if you lost your mom?
Not because of old age, or illness.
O wait isn't it an illness?

She loves them more then me,
She'll go to them for anything.
There is no hope for this addiction
it cant be beat only forgotten

How can you ignore this though?
She hides inside her depression
she seeks no help
just wants to sleep

she's gonna die if i dont help
she's deep inside her coma now

cant wake
cant shake

the angry bear
she's lost
or is it just her fear.

she took too much
now she cant give back
they'll take her first
then i'll die

the codine illness
thats what it is
im depressed and so is she

maybe i should take them too
then ill be in love too

sleep all day awake all night
im alone in the house again tonight
she leaves me here when i go to bed
but she dont know i know she did

while i sleep she goes to him
then comes home and has some more

this home is not a home to say
it hell jus not as warm up here.
the bills arent paid dishes need cleaned

for breakfast its flakes
the ones without sugar
and dinner its soup again

i've grown so much but she doesn't see
i'm never home and neither is she

my mom isn't worthy of the title
so i gave it to you
but all you did was ruin it too

i have no mom she died last year
sometimes i miss her
and shed a tear

i let you in
and you walked right out
you left me with them

what should i do now?
you illness is hereditary
so lets follow the trend

now i have an addiction you see
it developed quick..

cant wake
cant shake

the codine illness...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
