This is a poem I wrote about somebody that is hooked on drugs and alcohol, and only knows clubs and things of that sort.
This is not a mockery or a pun of any kind. I'm not trying to be funny or mean writing this. I'm trying to be sympathetic.

Hooked
 
Long nights
Been rough handed
And dealt with the wrong way
 
Tequila and margaritas
Have been my best friends
For days
 
Late nights that’ seem to never end
Sleeping in too late
And sometimes not sleeping at all
 
Each night there’s someone new
To satisfy my needs
And try to please me in every way
 
Clubs with ne-on lights
And guys with drinks in hand
And beds with one another
There for each other
 
Is everything my life knows
And most likely always will
 
Most days it feels as if I’m living in the darkness
There are no lights
And nothing good
Most days I just want to cry
That’s when alcohol becomes my friend again
 
It’s all darkness
Nothing ever good
Sometimes I black out
And can’t see for days
 
Love doesn’t exist
At least not in my world, anyways
And friends aren’t people; people betray
But the alcohol sitting on the night stand
Are the friends I have come to know
 
I want to be free
I want to leave the darkness
And finally see light
 
The calendar is two weeks late
Wait, maybe three
The bills aren’t paid
And nobody comes to check on me
And my worst problem is the bottle is almost empty
 
My family and friends left
They couldn’t handle what I was doing to myself
Said they’d love to be apart of my life
But not when I was ruining
Like I’m doing now
 
I’ve decided I’ve had enough
I want to leave the darkness
I want to see light and most of all my family
 
The darkness unfolds
And the light breaks through
For me to walk into
And meet my destiny
 
The treatment didn’t work on me
I was too sick
So the angles took me away
