    In Love With A White Woman



    I
    Came back to you
    cause I knew...
    you'll be waiting for me
    though i'm the
    fool...
    because you're
    only...
    innocently killing me
    slowly...

    backed into a corner
    running nose...
    nappy hair
    dirty clothes...
    stick a needle into
    my soul...and
    let the corruption
    flow...
    pray to
    a god...?
    no...
    gotta face these demons
    on my own...
    a fiend's sorrow
    is so deep to
    the bone...
    no remorse to
    hold...
    rolling paper taken
    from pages of the bible...
    smoking away a belief that
    was lied to you...

    I
    came back to you
    cause i knew...
    you loved taking
    lives...
    loving you is caressing
    suicide...
    loving you is putting my
    past behind...
    not from a
    pen...but
    through this
    syringe...
    a cowards
    revenge...
    my only way to face the
    pain from
    within....
    the love for white
    women...

    a poem about my struggle with drug addiction...

    Props to you for tackling a subject that you are struggling with, and so creatively so. Must be difficult, poet, but you keep right on battling those demons, and show them who is truly boss.
