Drug experiences. Good or bad


**************************************
Growing up
**************************************
Boffing lighter fluid and petrol
We thought solvents were all the same
Until we tried the Dampstart
You think it's good on spark plugs, it's even better on the brain
Going into vivid dreams
Seeing flashing greeens and reds
Talking in robot voices
Little aliens on our heads
Through life we all would stumble, never knowing what would next occure
The last thirteen years has been a psychedelic blur
As we all got older we got sick of doing things the same
We started to experiment and worked our way up the drugs chain
Weed, poppers, anphetamine, LSD
Until one day I stumbled across my beloved Ecstasy
For months I binged and binged But it was over far too soon
I had to wave goodby to my Ecstacy honeymoon
Without knowing it was happening I was drifting from reality
I soon realised it had dissolved my personality
What started as an adventure had now become a living hell
I felt exposed and vunerable
Like a nut without it's shell
I had to sort myself out, talk to Frank and admit defeat
Where there once was a brain
There's now only crabsticks & mincemeat


A fat joint that was rolled just right
we were smokin' skywalker that night
I took a big hit & held it in my lungs
The sweet flavor was so good on my tongue
Everyone in the room was smiling
I felt like the couch was flying
Then the desperate munchies set in
I couldn't control the hunger within
So we rummaged around for food
but nothing we saw looked good
We decided to walk to the store
& man that was a long tiring chore
Because my legs were as heavy as trees
& I couldn't even feel my damn knees
At the store we quickly filled the cart
When I saw something that stopped my heart
My parents were shopping in there
I quickly ducked as people stared
Then ran for my life; I had to flee
That was just one of the times I smoked weed

    Drugs are cool, then you're a fool, then you drool. Ask the man in a diaper. (inspired by Nancy Reagan)

      Thanks for your contribution Michael, I look forward to catching up on your work. Just back a business trip and am again pushed for time - Syd

      Thank you Syd.

      That was simply out of this world.

      I have never dabbled with drugs. Sadly one person I truly admire Janis Joplin was a victim of drugs. Died young too soon. A member of the 28 club. Most recent victim Amy Winehouse so much talent wasted and destroyed by drugs.

      Keep writing

        Thanks for your comment FineB. Yes Janice Joplin was a star, as was Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison etc.

        I think you'll find it's the 27 club though (I realise that was probably a typo lol)

        Drugs are bad without a doubt. I have never tried hard stuff like herion, crack and meth. Don't intend to either. But I do like to write about my own experiences. They are after all, what makes me who I am today.

        Thanks for reading - Syd

        It started with a pour of glue
        the latest craze was all so new
        the buzz came just before the lights went out
        it took me to another place
        my head floated around in space
        the feeling banished every nagging doubt
        i couldn't give a true account
        without the drug no one will count
        the alcoholic liquid drunk for fun
        acceptable most every night
        a nasty bruise to mark each fight
        reality left standing by my run
        the speed upgraded to cocaine
        the heroin shut down my brain
        as powder led me on a merry dance
        the ecstasy brought love and peace
        the acid tabs trails were released
        hallucinations interrupt the trance
        depression visits every day
        and brought the doctor into play
        the pain of life needs killers to abate
        the legal pills still bring a stone
        to millions lost and all alone
        all swallowed long before the next scripts date

        Hi tepo, this is brilliant mate it's a shame it couldn't all be added to the fusioned poem. Is this your own experience? If so then it's quite similar to mine except for the herion. Great write, thanks for sharing - Syd

        • tepo

          It is my own experience Syd
          Clean and sober over 19 year
          The marks are still prominent
          Ta for the opportunity
