The beginning of the end

I've been trying to fill this hole deep inside my chest. I promised I plead but you still left like all the rest. So here I sit once again I’m all alone. You won't even send a text to my phone. This is where I fail to stay strong. This life of mine starts to go wrong. I took my lighter and fired up the brass. I applied heat to get the bubble in the glass. I heat the rock and watch it melt down. I'm all smiles in the happiness that Ive found. Before I knew it im drawing from out of the spoon. One, two, blastoff soon ill be higher then the moon. You get that little burn in the back of your throat. Hang on cowboy cause you just hit some bomb dope. Then comes the ringing in your ears. Just sit back and all your worries and fears simply disappear. Don't worry about the lights fading in and out. That's the dope coursing through your veins ya your high no doubt. The color will leave your eyes. Your body engulfed in the warmth of a million butterflies. But now the demon has got you like a needle to thread. Welcome to the struggle cause you got to keep the demon fed. Now we've been up for nights and days. Given up hope we succumb to her ways. When she leaves you she leaves you feeling dead. You can't silence the voices screaming inside your head. Now you just look for the next high. Cause without that demon you wanna die. People will wonder where have you been. It's no secret with those track marks up and down your skin. Now you will know new lows. It's a sad story but thats just how it goes. Now your alone and feel so close to death. Just remember who did this her name is crystal meth. Now if you could relive that day. When your pal held out that needle tell what would you have to say.
