My friend heroin

By Derek Vallandingham

We used to hang out everyday.
I did whatever you would say.
The days you weren't there, I was blue.
you even killed my best friend too.
That didn't really matter to me.
Thought you loved me unconditionally.
With you I could run & hide,
Put all of my feelings aside.
The pain I thought you took away.
Left me with shame everyday
Didn't talk to my friends anymore,
don't really even know what for.
I swore it was you I hated,
left my life so complicated.
There's no where to run I can speak.
You'll even haunt me in my sleep
It's pshycological can't break free,
heroin you got a hold of me
I'm so disgusted & can't say no,
now i'm stuck & you won't let go.
At first I did you so I could get high
& now I need you just to get by.
You've left me with nothing else to take,
it won't be long now before I break

    In this darkness all things are new, and our old selves pass away, welcome here my brother, and home if you desire. All addiction is a lie. 13sonsofgod.....

    Damn this hits hard, I pray the best for you. Two of my family members are addicted to heroin, it is really tough, though my one cousin broke its spell and has been sober for several years. I wish you the most strength
