It started all honest
With intentions pure
But before I even knew it
Those intentions become more
No longer could I go home in peace
The fine white powder filled me,
A missing puzzle piece.
A hot shower and a pill to swallow
Would have me asleep and ready for the morrow.
Before I knew it, my life was gone.
The love I had known, was suddenly unsown.
My job began to fall apart,
I forgot what once moved my heart.
What did I love?
What made me sad?
Who was i before this drug made me mad?
I began to fight the current towing me under,
But nothing in my life had ever been stronger.
The battle never seems to end,
Trying to hold on to who I am.
