Dear Meth

Dear Meth, this is my letter to you and to inform the world, how I thought you were my boy, I thought that I was your girl I trusted you, your face I would seek you had me up for day's sometimes for weeks.
I thought I could lean on you if my life depend but as we can see all things must come to an end, I'm glad to say that we have fallen apart but I wish I never know you from the start.
Just that one hit smoke filled my lung's oh boy, then I was sprung, crystal, crank or speed you were like my medicine you was all I need, as the urge grew the more money I blew  all of my dreams were gone now because I listening to you.
It's a shame how you contribute to my pain, you unleashed the wild beast in me that could not be tamed, I could no longer see who was the real me, I just could not believe it, you stole my identity, I remember you did me so cold and now I'm starting to look kind of old.
My future is ruin look at my face, my teeth are rotting full of decay, I'm hungry and body is aching, there is no telling how much now I'm weighing. You have the name of a girl but your strength is ten men put together, yeah you were large and in charge I thought it would last forever, but my God is even better!
You played with my mind the whole entire time, so here's to our relationship, boy was I so wrong, I’m cutting all ties; I'm saying goodbye so long.
P.S So many things you put me through I'm glad that I found out the real you.
