Succumb: Drug Addiction
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

Yesterday's pills mean nothing, today-
a Soul is no place for a pharmacy-

a little pill so small to see-
what could it possibly do to me?
one in hand is what I see-
not the thousand melted internally

spreading a web inside of me
I am not the one I used to be!
entangled now, consuming me-
I'm dying out and weakening-

self- righteous pokes for pleasuring
are hurting now and deepening
the core I am, the life in me
the price to pay is killing me-

I don't want to die for an eternity-
I want to fight this, but just look and see
how low the high has taken me-

a little pill so small to see-
what could it possibly do to me?
one in hand is what I see-
not the thousand melted internally

and I want to cry-
but no tears come out of me-
Lord don't forsaken me-
I'm shivering-
I'm quivering-
at the overtakening-

I'm lying and dying, it's breaking me
I'm falling and calling but no one is listening-
I am sleeping and keeping no diary-
I am resting and blessing my self incessantly-

and then a final sigh does succumb-
no pulse or rise of lung-
it is over.
and done.
