The Life and Lies of an Addict By Alyssa Sammartino

The Life and Lies of an Addict

Look into these eyes, see how they glaze.

I’m sitting in this room yet not quite here.

Looking out at the world through a thick haze.

This trip is killing me I do fear.

 

Tie the thread, knot it good and tight.

With just a bit of scarlet in the vile,

Slowly you can see I am losing the fight.

What follows swiftly, the taste of bile.

 

Living a life full of lies and deceit.

Always hiding things, and secrets to keep.

The hold it has is too strong to defeat.

They all care so much, i can see them weep.

 

Isolating my family and friends,

Until this life comes to its bitter end.
