Woman, A Man's Personal Brand Of Heroin

Woman, A Man's Personal Brand Of Heroin

A Poem by jumbie's #1 fan
"

god i used a twilight reference...

"

 In almost every man, there is a craving

A yearning

To touch, to feel

Physically and emotionally

 

It could be said they have...an addiction

An obsession...with something they've never tried

 

He's studied it

Learned everything he can

Making it so much easier to obtain

 

And even though it is slightly out of his grasp

He is relentless

 

It used to be said 

Drugs were hard to come by

But now

They sell themselves

 

A man will pay a small price to get a pretty drug

Because they like the way it makes them feel

 

But sure enough, it does not last.

Once the drug is used

It lays forgotten

And he's on to the next one

 

Each drug that crosses his path

Each comes complete with a different high

Much better than the last

 

Empty bottles, used syringes

No wonder most women are on the fringes

 

Treated like a drug

Injected and tossed on the street

Disposal is the fate they meet.

Ouch.
Nice -- well, i was going to say 'innuendos' but let's go for 'metaphor'.
This bites, it really does. Great stuff.
