What is a drug?
my teacher
and I think to myself
A drug
is a voice
that says once more
just once more
That will capture
a freedom loving
spilling over with ideas
and tie a
thick heavy
around the neck
and won't let go
That will wrestle
with the ideas
until they are
in a dark
empty corner
Until the only love left
is the love
for the drug.

That is exactly what it is. it's a terrible thing that is so hard to quit. That is the perfect description of it. I love your writing. It is so simple. It does'nt have to have big words and crazy comparisons. the way you put the words together make it so perfect and wonderful. Crongrats on winning the contest!!! Unfortunately i can't comment/rate 9 of your poems because you don't have enough! But if you ever post more tell me and i will rate those too! I OWE YOU! :)))
