Death of an Addict

I cried a river of tears
and got washed away by the flood.
I fought to save myself,
I even paid the price in blood.

But here I sit in an empty room -
I'm praying someone will come round soon,
'cause I'm losing myself in this haze -
I don't think daylight will touch my face.

The world's gone grey
I'm fading fast,
Pictures flash by -
All my past

I wanna cry
But I can't see
Someone, Anyone
Please help me

My legs won't work
And I can't stand
Mom, I need you
Please hold my hand

I'm so cold,
Don't wanna die
I've spent my whole life
living a lie

Now sudden quiet,
Nothing here
Lost in a void
Alone with fear

Then I feel tears
like gentle rain
And someone softly 
sobs my name....

    an addicts thought processes are never quite this coherent. But you've done a very good job with this poem. Hugs, Catie :)
