Poetry Corner

For the drug I loved so much


For my dear friend cocaine – for all the late nights we spent together. Them long and empty nights, the ones I’d be looking at, things I didn’t want to see

The lies, the robbing and all the madness in my head. I would like to let you know something – I’m saying goodbye now – because you have put me through hell – you pulled my life apart, you destroyed my family....

I didn’t care,. I let you into my life, I stopped eating, I could not sleep, I felt alone, I cried. No-one cared you were killing me well, you didn’t care....

Well, Goodbye.. By the way, I’m clean now, oh shit, I forgot... I’ve got my family back now.. We laugh now, we sleep now, we eat now... we have fun now....

I can see my blue eyes now, we care now, we have an understanding now...I can FEEL now.

I’m not isolated now, I have a heart now.....

There’s no more lies now, I don’t feel alone no more.. So stay in Hell old ‘friend’ for I’ve new friends now...
