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.

Norman, OK

All my life, writing has been the one thing I've been good at. Of course, that's an opinion, and it depends on your tastes. Throughout everything in my semi-short life, writing is the one thing that c.. more..
