Heroine, Hells Drug

We told eachother everything,
And then the rain came,
We were too close,
Until you took your first dose,
First dose of heroine that is,
I wanted nothing to do with this,
But you dug us both into it,
And guess who tryed to dig us out,
And all you did was shout,
Shout because you had no more drugs,
You cried and said this life was to much,
But yet you wouldnt put down the drug that hurt You so much to touch,
I dont understand it all,
All you wanted was to get through the hellacious hall,
The hellacious hall full of narcotics,
I told you to quit the first time you did it,
I said heroine was for real,
You said what's the big deal,
With drugs I told you to behave,
But you didn't listen and now you're lying in your grave,
And for what?
A quick high,
For some reason I knew I would be saying bye,
This is too soon for you to die,
None of us expected this to happen,
Now I feel like it's my entire fault,
Only because I didn't tell an adult,
What if I did?
Would you grow to have a kid?
A future or a wife?
I feel like stabbing myself with a knife,
If only I would have told someone,
None of this would have to be done,
But since I didn't I'll always live with the fact,
That I could've saved your life,
And you could've had a wife,
So now I talk to kids about what drugs can do,
Try to make a difference in their lives by telling them the one story that I hate so much to tell,
Yes, I tell them the story about you.
This is my fav. b/c there are so many ppl out there that do this horrible drug and no one to help them.
What if it were you?

|Nice story, great write. I know you're blaming yourself for your friend, but in this world, everyone has to account for his/her own action. You're not guilty!.....but you are doing a great job by writing this story and talking to the kids.
