I come to you when weakness ensues.
Preoccupied with pain, your feelings so confused.
I call your name and say here is relief.
Little do you know I am your worst enemy and thief.
You hurt so bad you think… one time won't hurt.
But I'm a master at being horribly covert.
I come in many colors, black, brown or white.
Just lay out a line and all will be right.
Time goes by without needing me.
But a patient predator I am, this you'll soon see.
Watching and waiting for your low to arrive.
For that’s my cue and it’s when I thrive.
You want something stronger that works even faster.
Then it’s time for the pipe, just trust your master.
Blinded by bliss you don't even know,
I'm slowly beginning to own your soul.
You feel me calling you deep in your core.
The need … the cravings infect you even more.
I think something stronger is definitely in store.
So roll up your sleeve and let's start to explore.
So many veins waiting to be used.
Just inject that small bevel and I will be infused.
Your ride will take you to a place of no pain.
The only drawback is you will be filled with great shame.
Family and loved ones will no longer matter.
Your love for me will keep them torn and shattered.
I will run through your veins seeping into your cells,
Slowly overtaking you while your world turns to hell.
Your short time in heaven will be all that you chase,
For the devil… he now resides in your grace.
I will try for eternity to keep you distracted.
Not wanting you to know that you really could extract me
There is something greater than even me.
But you must not know because I need to feed.
A higher power is something I can’t take from you.
Those who have fought me know this to be true.
Admitting your powerless is my worst fear.
Like a dagger it hits me as hard as a spear.
Coming to believe and turning it over-
Are pathways to this nightmare finally being over.
