Recovery Poem From Darla


There is a monster who lives in my head, He talks to me softly he wants me dead.

He tells me this time I'll stay in control. He tells me not to let anyone know.

He convinces me that no one cares, He whispers the pain is to much to bear.

He tells me how wonderful I will feel. He tells me he loves me and it is real.

He tells me not to call anyone, My heart starts racing, he tells me it will be fun.

He tells me not to think of past times, He promises I can do it just once this time

Who is this monster who calls me by name, RELAPSE, he waiting to start the game.

Written while in detox 02-22-2002 by a addict named Darla

Recovery Poem by Elizabeth

I Can Breathe Again
By Elizabeth - 2010

I can breathe again
Whispers in the wind
Telling me
That our lives can
Be lived
Sober and Free
From all the pain and anguish
That consumed
Our lives
I can breathe again
No more pain
Inflicted on you
From me....
Having to break those vows
Of life
For What? Why?
Through those steps
In that Big ass book
You and I will learn
To Breathe Again

"Let me watch my children grow, to see what they become... oh Lord don't you let the cold winds blow till I'm too old to die young" .. the words of that classic country song echoed through my consciousness in that skid row bar...
