Dope

a poem i wrote many years ago for my first true love:

Dope

So you’re goin to need a hand again

and your knocking at my door

driving me, insanity

and cutting through my life

how can i tell the stranger 

to leave and come no more

the man i love is here and slowly dying

but who to place the blame upon

and who to curse to hell

ten thousand  men rich with money stained with blood

am i not my brother’s keeper?

is he not my life?

my love for him no longer has a place

i curse the world for being

i curse the devil in disguise

he’s laughing in my face

and now at last i’m losing fast

i’ll bury him tomorrow..

 

R.I.P. R.J.E.♥

    I love this! >.<

    To say I can relate and connect to this is an understatement.

    I feel your frustration and your pain, and the fear along with the torment!

    So sorry for you having to go through all this. Life sometimes is just not fair to all the great people in the world.

    I wish I could take the pain away and carry it on my shoulder's for you!
    I would in a heart beat!

    Thanks so much for reading my poem as well, and connecting to it the way you did,
    it absolutely means the world to me!

    • thanks Shane, it was written for my first husband who passed in 1978 at the age of 31. Be well,and fight the fight

    I will keep on fighting!
    I am so sorry you lost your husband, Losing my big brother almost destroyed me.
    I won’t say I know how you feel because I don’t but I can relate to losing someone you love more than anything else in the world.

    You keep on fighting the good fight as well!

    You truly are a great person and I am so glad I found you and your poems!

  3. Thanks Again !
