    >>> First, to all who are concerned - I am keeping my word.
    I checked out a poem by Shaz and Midnight son BEFORE posting
    this, so Destee.COM can have some reciprocity.
    A quality often misplaced in relationships, friendships
    and the like - okay, here's the piece <<<<<<<<<<<<




    " Substance Abuse "


    Nicotene in my chemistry


    My cigarrettes are candles & burnt nerve endings

    My alcohol is a blur of words

    remy

    and Alize' the day away
    and I write LESS poems now cuz i'm tired
    of lessons i should've learned slipping through my fingers.

    A sweaty grip on dosage -
    I mean horse pills of pride swallowed
    still throwing back shots of word bourbon ----- inside hollow
    throat and chess cavities


    Mira Aqui !

    I SEE w/ eyes wide shut

    Ecstacy tripping leaves pupils wide open off of **** they should've learned by now.

    Aerosol poetry from sniffing my own graffitti
    trying to recognize MY MARK

    MY ART

    MY TAG

    My addiction IS a written prescription

    authorized by brain cells i've fried

    and nights i've cried

    I have CRIED nights

    No, I mean i have CRIED NIGHTS -

    I mean... tears have tried to rinse the black off my face

    collecting melanin - alcoholic tears leaving my pores open.


    high tolerance afterall -- maybe ?


    Family & friends thinking
    i'm not into binge drinking
    but i stay under the influence

    Nervous and trembling at the thought of Highs Ending
    so ... freebase balances tipping scales.
    Issue 1 failed, so my *** is off to jail
    and I can quit anytime I want to.


    I can quit anytime I want to.


    Kissing lips made of hemp in hot moments
    igniting ciphers of something nearly illegal.

    I can quit anytime I want to.








    The fire rises.

    Lighting the anxiously waiting tip of death.

    Needing a Hit has left me beaten and bruised



    I can quit anytime I want to.

    _________________________________________________

    Note: If any of you know of a girl 18-25 who doesn't
    drink or smoke, let me know.
    I don't want to holla -- it would just be nice to know
    that girls like that exist, somewhere.
    I mean no drinking or smoking AT ALL.

    Needless to say this played a part in my relationship ending,
    rehab for everyone !

    Excellent Piece!

    Excellent subject matter, concise and fluid with the flow, filled with metaphors and straight to the point truths about addictions in it's many forms...You shouted out a warning and I think everone that read ya ,heard ya, felt ya, and (clap ) in applause!
    Do your thang and be true to you , don't let anyone influence what you do...Keep it Pure...that's for sure and you can't go wrong as long as it's from the Heart & Soul!

    Blessings On Ya House!

    Thank you lucious - i appreciate it.
    Im not always tempted to embibe in these things-
    but i do wonder why everyone seems so casual about it.
