Live as if you'll die tomorrow, dream as if you'll live forever. -James Dean


I can't take it
Give me the cold steel
Skin tingles at the thought
Let the blade kiss my flesh
The sting soothes the pain
Blood rises
Emotions rise and flow over the surface
White teeth smile at the red
Wipe it away
Wash it down the drain
No one will know
The scar?
"I fell"

I can't take it
Give me the drink that burns
Tongue tingles at the thought
Let the bottle kiss my lips
The burn soothes the pain
Unfocused eyes
Unfocused emotions fade in and out
Crazed smile at the glass
Drink it away
Wash it down
No one will know
I'm stumbling?
"I'm tired"

I can't take it
Give me the smoke that burns
Lungs tingle at the thought
Let the tobacco kiss my lips
The nicotine soothes the pain
Smoke drifts away
Emotions rise and turn to ash
White teeth smile past the grey
Blow it away
Inhale it down
No one will know
I smell?
"I was with a friend"

I can't take it
Give me the needle that stings
Vein tingles at the thought
Let the amber kiss my blood
The fire soothes the pain
Blood flows away
Emotions fade to nothing
Wild smile at the sky
Wish it away
Inject it down
No one will know
The red marks?
"I fell.."


The author's comments:
I have none of these addictions. However a few close friends do. They are working hard to pull themselves away. This was not written from experience, just from witness.

"Love means holding on to someone just as hard as you can because if you don't, one blink and they might disappear... forever." -Ellen Hopkins, Impulse

This is really good i can't believe I'm the first to comment this is amazing.. the parallelism was great you started of great to you didn't wait and you just went for it. i know its tough I've struggled with a couple of these and its tough and its tough to see your friends do it. don't leave them alone thats not what they want even though they may push you away... remind them that you care and its scary to watch your friends do this i know... but before beautiful things some ugly and dark must come first, its definently a hard position for them to if they turn to these things when they are stressed or sad or mad... you just gotta stand by them... (sorry its soooooo much) but this is really really good
