All The Drugs In This World

Rating: 4.7

All The Drugs In This World
Won't bring back my past
I try every drug I can find
Hoping one high will last
The one thing they can't do
Is the one thing that I want
Though I know I'm insecure
Its security that I flaunt
Acting as if I'm invincable
The drugs make me fly
I live for this addiction
Only alive from high to high
This sick sad addiction
Is all I'm living for
Without it my life is empty
I've lost everything and more
Now I sit in my room
Wondering how long this high will last
All The Drugs In This World
Can't bring back my past

Yeah i feel you on this one ay We all do something that's bad for us whether conciously or subconciously... 'And when there's no love, we try to fill the emptiness with drugs'. I agree with you no drug can compensate for a someone living... They show me a good time but they can't caress me at the end of the night, rather than caress they seem to depress but HEY! .... it's something ;) Take care Tatianna LL

An insightful piece on drug addiction, well conceived and nicely crafted with conviction. Thanks for sharing Tatianna.

I don't remember this in my first readings of your first thirty poems but I have such a messy memory. This poem is so absolutely in line with my experience when, at the age of 17, I tried to marry my childhood sweetheart but was left at the altar because she gave in to her parents bribing her to leave me. I went on a 18 year binge of one high to the next to bury my heartbreak, even while dating others, I had to try and stop thinking about that first true love. I nearly died from the mess I made of my life because of my self-pity and heartbreak. This poem reflects all of this in such a perfect and concise way. You are one mighty talebt dear Ms. Moonshadow. I respect you very much.
