Poem: Destroying Yourself

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Destroying yourself is a poem about someone who is using drugs. He trusts in a feeling when he is high not realizing that he is destroying himself. He hurts loved ones along the way with ever changing mood swings. He tells lies trying to hide this life from others. He lives in confusion.

Destroying Yourself

Mixed emotions,
drug fueled,
lost on a journey by yourself,
hurting loved ones along the way.

Confusion from one moment
to the next
with ever changing moods,
thoughts tangled in a web of lies.

Piece by piece,
life is changing before your eyes,
trusting in a feeling when you are high,
destroying the goodness hiding inside.
