TW ! This is a more graphic piece that I wrote when I was deep in active addiction.
The cold hard facts…
Cause and effect
desperate actions cause for desperate measures
all behaviours have consequences
It’s fucking gravity…
This poem was written when i was truly in the depths of despair, mired very deep in my addiction and really struggling to see a way out!
Suddenly it wasn’t the beginning anymore
There was weed and cigarettes and alcohol galore…
You are a giant caution sign on
The road I am sauntering down
with my drink in one hand and my dart in the other
All the chicken soup
In the world
Could not breathe into me
The liquors kiss upon my lips
will not seal my fate…
It is a winding path
Riddled with potholes
I am alice….
I must never forget!
I plummet like a rock
I hear a constant clock
