Best Friends

Best Friends

A Poem by Marvin Lewis Jr.

 I’m here for you whenever you need to escape environments that are full of tension, 

just walk in the bathroom put me in the Lenox and 

light your redemption. 

I’m a full-grown tree now but when we first met I 

was just a twig, 

I’m with you for life so even when you procreate 

I’ll already be best friends with your kids. 

Every now and then I reminisce about when you 

caught your first contact, 

at first you hesitated but after one hit you were 

hooked and it was like signing a lifetime contract. 

You’re so beautiful to me with your burnt lips, black 

fingertips, and eyes all hazy, 

you think you dictate the relationship think again I'm the future for your baby’s babies. 

Its funny cause your mom said I wasn’t for you and 

that you should really leave me, 

It’s too late cause I got you bent over backwards, 

sweating, itching ready to sell your son’s psp. 

So you could go on a date with me just to prove that 

nothing has changed, 

five minutes later you’re in the bathroom trying to 

find a good vein. 

I really love you so just let loose and we’ll 

transcend time and space, 

I’ll make you feel gorgeous when the mirror 

converses with a bony figure and an obscure face

but that’s alright cause I’ll take you higher than 

you’ve ever been,

on a roller coaster ride that will 

never end because we are the epitome of best 

friends. 

I’ll get you open with one thought make you climax 

with an injection, 

the first part of the relationship you played hard to 

get but now we get down with no protection. 

Till this very day you look back making excuses for 

your addiction trying to separate consequence from 

the decision, 

wallowing in perversion while justifying your 

intensions, 

anxiously trying to revive your corroded 

inventions, 

failing to realize after that first taste there was no 

refund... 

That’s okay because the kind of feeling I can 

give you has no definition, 

together we’ve soared above boundaries and put our 

conscience in rotation so just sit back and appreciate 

these fanciful visions. 

There’s nothing that can separate us accept death 

itself, 

I’m with you through thick and thin please believe I 

know your true wealth. 

When your family and friends say leave me admit 

that you need me, 

we're gonna burn in a Sheol made just for us.

You were clearly able to define what happens when an addiction (could be anything from sex to gambling, in this case drugs) takes place consuming
one and becoming their "best friend".
The first parental warnings...

"Its funny cause your mom said I wasn't for you and
that you should really leave me, "

and the many varied faces and thrills of evil and sin, and how easy it is to be enticed and lured
into darkness where you (in the flesh) are found making excuses for not knowing how to get out.
I have read this many,many times and each time it was painful,
because of my love for my brother (that struggles with addiction). This is brilliantly written. It made me feel the pain, struggles, hardship, and loss that not only my brother experiences but patients that I care for as well. It is a very vivid and bleeding piece that will lose some if not personally pierced/touched
by "a feeling that has no definition".

I applaud you Marvin for the way that you express yourself.

bey
the title is eerie once the poem is read, but it adds to the power of the poetry. more like hammers it down onto the top of your head.

your poetry is good.
