"CRYSTAL" A Little over a year has passed Since I first met you At first we really hit it off But, then, I had no clue. A few more months had passed on by I always kept you near "Crystal was my new best friend" (I thought) With you I had no fear. Then I started noticing Everything had changed I realized now you weren't my friend And my thinking was derranged. More and more I needed you Just to keep from getting sick You stole my life, you evil whore! You played an evil trick. As I watched my life spin out of control All the rumors became true. You had me hooked, I couldn't stop I didn't know what to do. My friends and family noticed The changes happening to me All the while I tried to deny And I refused to even see. Then the really bad things started The Police always at my place They had reports you stayed with me It was a never ending race. Eventually after I had lost my friends And my family pulled away I knew I had to be done with you No longer can I play. I tried to forget and put you behind As I rebuilt my life Things were starting to get good again No more drama, no more strife. It had been just barely over a year That I stayed away from you But that all ended really fast And now you're back with a vengence too! This time I've been really bad Oh God, what have I done? I don't even like you now You're no longer any fun. You've taken my soul, destroyed my life I hate what I've become I tried to run away from you But in the end you always won. How'd I ever let it get like this? My addiction rules me now I can't seem to get away from you As you proudly take a bow. I wish now I would have listened To my family and my friends They're the ones who really cared And worried without end. Once again I've walked away from you I've been through more than enough hell I struggle some days more than before But I'm determined, I WILL get well. So goodbye Crystal, you evil whore Stay far away from me There's no longer any room for you In this better life I lead! ~Ashleigh~
