Crumbs Of An Addict - Poem by Emily Myers

White powder eats away every ounce of who you were
The burning sensation drowns out your words
Blood pours out crimson against cold, pallid skin
You cannot resist, you inhale once again
Darkness surrounds you like the shadow of black
Once you’ve stepped in, there is no coming back
Dollar bills and credit cards are the tools of your trade
You chop and roll, and dice and slice your soul away
Anger boils in your heart, demons break your thoughts
Lashing out at those who help, the powder calls the shots
Addiction pulls and eats at you, tears away your mind
Decay screams from deep within hollow, bloodshot eyes
I search inside you somewhere for the person that I loved
But the powder eats it all away, and leaves me with the crumbs
