Addiction Poem

Poem By Sian Mein

In my mind I hold a picture
Of how we used to be
For everything you needed
You could turn to me.
I still see that sweet faced baby
And the toddler full of joy
The charming little person
And the athletic growing boy.
Every phase I relished
Treasuring every day
All the while knowing
Someday you’d grow away.

I guess I wasn’t watching
Not holding up my end
Because I swear I never saw
When evil stole in on the wind.
I sensed something was different
I knew something was wrong
But tried to justify my part
“The Single Mother’s Song.”
When I finally woke up
Nowhere left to hide
I cried and swore, yelled and begged
But I was always on your side!

Through all the broken promises
The stealing and the lies,
Somehow I still could find my son
When I looked into your eyes.
The phone became my enemy
Each ring could bring my death
Because I feared the words I’d hear
I lived holding my breath.
The road has not been easy
But I’ve always lived in hope
Because I know you’re not the enemy
The monster’s name is DOPE.
This disease will never leave you
You’ll struggle One Day At A Time,
You won’t always be a junkie
But you WILL always be MINE.

From a short distance,
I look upon your beautiful face.
You notice and smile
With the most humbling grace.

In My Mind I Hold A Picture

In my mind I hold a picture
Of how we used to be

You could turn to me.

Lord Of The Flies

The boys are in pain,
On an island with no where to hide
A gaping hole in society
One is killed with a powerful blow

When I Was In Tears

You have been my friend for a very long time,
I asked you to bend and you made a rhyme,
When I needed you, you were always there
When I was in tears, you would say its not fair,


You make me smile
When I'm having a bad day
You make me laugh
At everything you say.

More Than A Year Ago

The very first day
More than a year ago
When our eyes first met
I'll never let go.
