Methamphetamine

  • If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I may boast but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering, love is kind, it is not jealous, love does not boast, it is not inflated. It is not discourt

Poem Commentary

This goes out to 3 friends, and the lives of many others who have lost their minds along with everything else to this dangerous drug!

Methamphetamine

Quicksand, quick glass, collapsing down the hourglass
Crafting crystal cutting bright eyes
Blinding biting bleeding lips
Drip to the music of grinding metal teeth
The background of quick screaming heart beats

Hide the lie abysmal under covers atop of sheets
Where above lovely crystal clear tears cement and seek
The other side of a pale blistered cheek

Peek-a-boo, shadows over shoulders penetrate you
The demons of greed dress you with seeds
Glacial sweats and scorching flashes
The slow demise, slowly crumbling to fragments
Until you have become nothing but a vessel of ashes

Dancing with the moon atop jet black clouds
Feet get fastened within the cracks and grooves
But your arms still motion to the rhythm of blues

The adaptation of declining deeper
The taste of white paste burns with no concerns
Lie, cheat, and steal before you peel you skin
What it’s worth, then things get worse

Dreams drown, Friends disappear, Your mother cry’s
Partners bleed, on the corner with nothing to eat

When you were a little boy
You always wondered
Why people pulled trash cans with empty cans
Living on the streets

This is one piece you were meant to write. Your talent, style and knowledge, brought this horror to life in a way that many have tried before, but never to such a realistic height as you have done here. Top notch work.

very well written, your phrasing is darkly beautiful, haunting and scary as shit, as it's dead on accurate. I too have lost friends to this toxic waste...watched them lose youth, respect and body parts along the way, if demon's do exist, meth is one. excellent portrayal of a heartbreaking downward spiral. 10

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
