Drug Addict - A short life Poem

At first you discreetly covered your steps
Until the poison left you inept
Now at the whim of a dealers command
You steal and lie to put grams in hand

You graduated from the slow burn of 'weed'
Now all consumed by the harsher 'speed'
Horse pills, legal highs the numbing of the brain
It's only the cartels who triumph and gain

No recall no shame just the craving pain
Sniff ,pill pop, inject, time and again
Possessed by a swift chemical high
You play roulette, the prize not to die

Shunned by a family who fear your moods
No competition drugs triumph over food
Reduced to a scabby skeletal form
You seek the monsters sustenance from dusk till dawn
