Hero in Love
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

This poem is about the experience I believe people go through with drug addiction...and the wrong turn a person can take with an opiate drug.

the best friend
that came along
amazing companion
who does no wrong

amazing love
between eachother
strong like the mother

What a powerful thing
this friend does bring.

I cannot say no
when it comes in slow
such a kind way
to enter in,
eases and pleases
like a spring wind

asleep so deep within the spell
my best friend wakes me
like the distinct bell-

it calls me to play again and again
I can't help but say now
when it says when

I can't say no,
when it comes in slow
such a kind way
to enter in,
eases and pleases
like a spring wind

what will become of the two of us?
I will not withdraw!
so pure this lure,
I want more and more

if I cannot afford the love n'more
what, then, to live for?
I will die for this love I found
and this love will put me down.

so softly in the ground.
