Lethal Love Letters (Dear Heroin) - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

Dear Heroin,
My name is Nicole and I'm writing to you
Because I've heard of some stories of what you can do
I heard you can stop me from feeling insane
I heard you have powers
That can take away all the pain
So I have come knocking
I stand here today
Hello Heroin-please show me the way!

Dear Nicole,
Yes, it is true
I feel quite serene
I am the answer-
If you know what I mean!
You'll shoot through the sky
You'll feel like you're soaring
When you shoot me
Life will no longer seem boring
I'll take you to places that you want to go
I'll put on a master piece-the world's finest show!
With all of this magic that I possess
But, I promise my dear you won't become too obsessed
Here I am now, standing at your door.
Try me just once, I promise nothing more
I'm signing out now, but here's just a taste
I promise you this; not one drop will you waste
Yours, always, forevermore
This is Heroin here, on the step of your door.

Dear Heroin,
I gave you a shot! Yes, I did today!
Hell I gave you a shot-right in my vein
And you were on point, with what you said
I no longer feel empty, I no longer feel dead
As you seep through my veins
I sit here pensive
My peace is so priceless, my serenity is extensive
I feel like a Queen in some screwed* up strange place
No longer these demons-do I have to face
So I ask of you Heroin
Just to visit once more
Come visit again, just knock at the door!

Dear Nicole,
Welcome my child!
You are now my posession!
The demon's within you-
I will be your obsession
Exorcism is not
Even an OPTION
You're stuck with me now
And, I just can't be forgotten
I seep through your veins
I claw at your skin
You can fight the battle
But, you will NEVER win!
When you think that it's over
And, you think that you've won
You will find out my dear
That the battle's just begun
A fight to the death
As I take over your soul
With me in your system
I am all that you'll know
I'll rape you of everything
That you though you knew
I'll brainwash your mind
And, you won't have a clue
You'll be left in a corner
Of darkness and grief
I'll be your religion
Your one and only true belief
Here I am child
And, now you are my whore,
As I patiently sit
Waiting at your door.
Once again it's Heroin, forevermore.

Dear Heroin,
How could you do this?
I can't even breathe
It's like I am dying
I can't think
I can't see
Save me from dying
I scream right out loud
I see all the faces
But you stand out in the crowd
I muster the strength to try to get up and just leave
But it's like without you
I can't even breathe!
So I fall down to my feet
And I beg for some mercy
But, it's like I am stuck
Or like somebody has cursed me
Who now can save me
From this cycle of destruction?
From this world that I now live in
And, I just keep getting stuck in
Goodbye Heroin, please don't reply.
Goodbye Heroin, I don't want to die.

Dear Nicole,
You're threatening to leave me?
This must be a joke
This must be a game
Or a trick
or a hoax
You cannot go-just try for a day
I am your sanity
I am the ONLY way!
Your bones they will throb
Your stomach will rot
Your heart will be broken
If you try to stop!
You'll feel like you're dying
For days at a time
You'll just keep on crying
If you are no longer mine
I've got your soul
I've seduced you sweetheart
Just give it up now
You were mine from the start
So here I am sweetie,
Still sitting at your door-
Yep, it's Heroin darling, forevermore.

Dear Heroin,
I thought I would leave you
But, you were all that I needed
I tried to just leave you
I begged and I pleaded
But, I gave in again
To your seductive power
And now I sit in filth
In desperate need of a shower
To cleanse me of all
The pain and the guilt
I sit like a rose
That's dead and dose wilt
But, Heroin, I'm telling you; I must fight back
I cannot do this
I'm in full attack
I'm taking my life
I'm standing up now
I swear I will do it
I'll do it somehow
And if I open my door
And you're still standing there
I swear to you Heroin;
I will no longer care
I'm over this twisted
Love-Hate AFFAIR
And, I'm killing you NOW
So please be aware!
Goodbye Heroin,
I'm saying GOODBYE
I want to live-

    You rocks it girl. You'll survive it but it won't be easy, and sometimes you'll wish that you hadn't- just like you tell in your poems. You're exciting, a better addiction than heroin. Keep on. Keep strong. Keep going. I'm enjoin'- not your suffering but your trust to put it into words. Rock on! (Report)Reply
