My love for you has a stain
All the pain I took from you and your addiction
For a while I let the thoughts of it rule me
Then I thought, “What was I to gain?”
All those promises broken
There are so many things that could have from this
After what your addiction has taken away
You still go for it when it calls your name
Really nobody’s to blame

My love for you has a stain
Knowing you chose drugs before me
That thought just bugs me
How did you live with telling me you loved me
The pain of all this and nothing to gain
The thought of you dying
Just another thing that keeps me crying

My love for you has a stain
These tear drops feel like rain
I can’t take this anymore
I’ll close my eyes right here right now
Maybe when I open them
This all will just be a dream


My love for you has a stain


The author's comments:
This poem is about the pain that addiction has caused our family. As a whole each and ever person in our family has either been directly or indirectly affected by either their own fight with drug addiction or another members. If you are reading this remember it is easy to fall but ten times harder to make the climb back up. No matter how bad things may seem they will always get better in the end. I hope you enjyed this piece.

Thanks to all. This is something that my family has had to deal with and overcome for the past 17 years. For eight of the 17 years my mother was clean and was doing well. However about three years ago she took a turn for the worst. As of now she is in a drug rehabilitation center and not doing well. I wish her the best and thank you for the feedback...

Some of it was a little awkward, but, overall, it's beautiful, and I love the emotion it has to it.

"My love for you has a stain"-- gorgeous line.

I can feel that these are your own experiences, something you've really been through and given some thought to.

It is beautiful. I love it. :)

The ideas are great, but I don't think that it flows very well.

This is very sad but also very well written.
