Author's Notes

"I wrote this because addiction has become excessively worse. Too many young people are dying I've lost many people to this terrible diease. Including my halfbrother this week."

It calls out to you 

Begs you 

Try Me

Try Me

You know you want to

It whispers I'll take all your pain away

You try it once 

You swear that's it

you think you’re in control

Then you try it again and again

 It takes over your being 

It calls to you 



You now belong to it

 It pushes everything thing you love 

Away from you

Breaks your heart and spirit 

You hurt everyone 

 It makes you go crazy

With nowhere to run to

Nowhere to go

Wherever you go it'll find you

My name is


I'll consume your life

Until I take that away too
