As I stick the needle into my vein

Fuck knows why I am doing this again
Going on a trip to the unknown

Like a dead bird that has never flown


Down the deep dark alleys I see a tree

And somehow it's talking to me
I respond with laughter tears and pain

The black clouds open with spiky rain


My body heavy and wet I fall through the ground
Screaming with fear but there is no bastard around

My heart pounding with red sweat from my pores

With dark visions my head is cracking and so sore


I am pulled away with the speed of light

Looking up at patchy skies with stars so bright

Back in my bed with knotted sheets on the floor
I struggle for the needle as I need more

    I’ve never used Intervenous drugs.
    However, I once had a roommate who was a recovering heroine addict.
    She once told me that “ heroin leaves a hole in your heart, A void that can never be filled “
    Anyway, Awsome write!

      Hi Kitcat. The title drew me in straight away and what a great poem.

      "I respond with laughter tears and pain

      The black clouds open with spiky rain"

      I loved those lines. Despite the impression you may get from some of my poems I have never used intravenous drugs, or anything as a addictive as crack/heroine. If I did though then I'm sure I could relate to this piece. Brilliantly written. I look forward to reading more from you later.
