Vulnerable to my drug of choice;

I see it sitting there in front of me-

Looking at me.

I get up and walk away, I feel it following me.


I run back to it; it sends me high,

High to an atmosphere nonexistent to mankind.

Feel the drug run through my body,

Making me so hot.


I fall back on my pillows no longer

A part of society.

“I have to quit!” I tell myself.

I get up and move my drug to the trash can.


I walk to the kitchen, it’s there,

I walk to my bedroom, it’s there.

I walk to the bathroom, it’s there.


My mind wants to be left alone,

But my body wants this relationship

To last forever.


I can taste it on the underside of my tongue;

Smell it through my burning nose.

I cannot resist the temptation that this

Drug has put upon me.


I sit indian-style on my bed looking at it;

Trying to read it.

It looks back; becoming an

Intrinsic version of myself.


I can’t keep succumbing to its hold

It has on me.

Apprehensive about rehabilitation;

Knowing I’m just going to relapse

Once I’m back in its presence.


I try to find fallacies in its reasons

To keeping a chain hold on me;

Have yet to find one.


Yet it continues to feed me logical

Reasons on why I can’t be without it.

Once again, I’m seduced into its

Everlasting love for me.


The hot rush creeps up my body;

Up, up from my toes to my calves.

Up, up to my thighs-

Up, up to my navel-

Up, up to my neck.


Never had a feeling so overwhelming

As this drug’s high.

I cannot part from it.

No never!

My man is some drug huh? -For more of my work…
