Legendary Addiction

The deeper you push, the higher you get,
that's just a myth,
told by those who haven’t experienced
the urban legend of addiction yet.

Hit it right,
Hit it left,
Hit it in your neck.

Pleasure comes with no direction,
guided only by the intent to be misleading.

Scratching and picking at what is left of the rotting flesh falling away from an already decaying body.

Poison me,
Poison the pain,
Poison is the disease that eases.

Ill from a sickness that chases the burning ache into flames.

Relieved by the numbing warmth
of modern medicines very own Jekyll and Hyde.

The remake of this horror story is known as Dope to most.

Heal hurt,
Heal from within,
Heal feeling crazy with being insane.

Hiding between hallways filled with shameful waste.

Feigning to be aware of nothing true,
begging to be released from the binding belief that has captivated your entire being.

Pray today,
Pray for Death,
Pray to live for one more hit.

The further you get the easier it gets to forget, that’s what you think,
I know things to be quit the opposite.

  Modern medicin addiction can be very tough. I assume this is what you are referring to in this piece. Dope is a word used so widely it can mean just about any "poison". I like the unconcluded thoughts you put in this piece. I'm not sure if you meant it that way but that is what I see. It made me recall my bad habit days, sitting there all doped up. I would have thoughts going through my head and they would often confuse me. I would take everything in slow motion and wouldn't be able to continue with the last thought. I would forget my previous pain only to be rediscovered once the dosage came down. Often i felt much worse when I sobered up, driving me to just take more so I would be numb again. It never worked and eventually I caught myself before it became too intense. I know how it is to be addicted, very tough on your body and mind. Not to mention the pressure from the so called "friends" who like to push you to do more with them.
This wonderfully described the agony of addiction, the fake euphoria one can get by poisoning one's body. I am impressed by the depth of insight you have and i encourage you to put out more work of this reality.

Thanks for listening,

  This is a very good write. You have done a great job at capturing the feelings of an addict. Addiction is such a powerful thing regardless of what the addiction is to. This, to me, reads as a personal experience. It is very knowledgable and speaks as if you were talking about your own experience. The write itself is very well done. It gives the reader good insight into how it feels and what the person goes through. Very well written and expressed. Take care.

  This a very honest and original write.

I am seeing a write through the eyes of an addict. Maybe I am wrong.

Addiction affects everyone differently.
I have known many addicts and the one thing that remains the same with all of them is that they will always be an addict.
No matter what the drug of choice the results are the same.
Nothing can compare with the need to drown the rising gorge within.

You have a very special write that all should read.
If this was not written through the eyes of an addict then you have a very keen insight to the world of an addict.

Pleas keep them coming

Respect and Admiration
