Drugs over Love

I don’t want to lie to you, so here goes
I wish, I could honestly say I’d choose you …
Over my little friends, named “drugs”
But right now, at this moment of time, in life
I’ve truly chosen drugs over your love,
For my love of drugs has consumed my love for you,
It’s not fair for you to suffer being in love with a junkie,
Having to worry haunts the back of your thoughts,
I know this is true; you should turn around and start walking,
With no pity, never looking back, cause only time will change my hearts decision
And I don’t think that time you have to waste,
And you shouldn’t give love to someone who’s also in love with something else,
I mean seriously I hear the breaking of your heart,
When I say these pills are my closest lover and friend,
So darling, here’s your warning, being with me well, staying with me
Will cost you your heart, it will be the roller coaster of your life,
But if you still wish to stay, please know
It’s not going to be easy it’s going to be a struggle,
For the both of us, especially me
To admit my reality of life is real,
Than want to live a sober, clean life, and also admit
You’re my only true lover, will be the hardest thing
I’ll have to do,
Giving up drugs for love, now that’s the truth from deep within my soul darling,
Damn I should have lied about that brutal, honest, to god truth…..

after sitting down and actually reading my own words it makes me realize how i allowed "drugs" to get the best of me and who i truly and honestly loved, all this time the people who walked out of my life i thought they honestly didn't care about me anyway but truly you couldn't handle it anymore watching me kill myself, i understand now and, i apologize for allowing drugs to control who i was and who i loved, and thank you to the people who stayed by my side even through my denial of addiction, its because of you friends and family i came through to see the damage i caused. you opened my eye's

This is wonderfully amazing! I can really relate to your words from the opposite point of view. See, I was the one whose love was thrown away for drugs. It hurt me so much and I'm glad you were able to realize that you did wrong and I just hope my ex realixes the same thing!
