Heroin addict (Poem) Marriage Creed


MARRIAGE CREEDMARRIAGE CREED
By An Anonymous Addict So now, Little Man, you’ve grown tired of
grass, L.S.D, goof balls, cocaine, and hash;
And someone, pretending to be a true friend, Said, “I’ll introduce you to Miss Heroin.”
Well, honey, before you start fooling with me,
Just let me inform you of how it will be. For I will seduce you and make you my slave.
I’ve sent men much stronger than you to their graves.
You think you could never become a disgrace And end up addicted to poppy seed waste.
So you’ll start inhaling me one afternoon; You’ll take me into your arms very soon.
And once I have entered deep down in your veins,
The craving will nearly drive you insane. You’ll need lots of money (as you have been
told); For darling, I’m much more expensive than
gold. You’ll swindle your mother; and just for a
buck, You’ll turn into something vile and corrupt.
You’ll mug and you’ll steal for my narcotic charm,
And feel contentment when I’m in your arm. The day when you realize the monster you’ve
grown, You’ll solemnly promise to leave me alone.
If you think that you’ve got the mystical knack,
Then, sweetie, just try getting me off your back.
The vomit the cramps your gut tied in a knot, The jangling nerves screaming for just one
more shot. The hot chills and cold sweat, the withdrawal
pains, Can only be saved by my little white grains.
There’s no other way, and there’s no need to look;
For deep down inside, you will know you’re hooked.
You’ll desperately run to the pusher, and then,
You’ll welcome me back to your arms once again. And when you return (just as I foretold:),
I know that you’ll give me your body and soul. You’ll give up your morals, your conscience,
your heart, And you will be mine until Back

  1. the "unknown artist" is supposed to be from Channelview Tx. & don't know what's
    become of her since this poem, it was written early 80's, her father was a fire fighter

  2. Hell yeah. You should read wasting talent by Ryan leone. It is considered the darkest novel ever written about drug addiction. It probably isn't something you'd like if you are timid or get offended easily. It's pretty fucking funny if you've been there. You can get it on amazon.

  3. I was in jail with a guy about 30 years ago in Texas and they put him in my cell he slept for the first 3 days he was there he had pills stuffed with heroin up his butt he had a poem that he had supposedly written in his pocket that was torn up on every corner missing words so him and I sat down over the next two weeks and rewrote the parts that were missing the poem you just read is the poem that we wrote with very subtle differences my stepson is now missing in Florida he's addicted to heroin and pills and his story made me remember that poem from so long ago and I actually just posted it on my youtube account and my Twitter page @raptorPCgaming which is how I found your video

  4. Hey Billy Lake I had a copy of the poem when I was in elementary school it was called Ms Heroin but it was a three page poem so the poem is longer then the one you have unfortunately I lost it when i had moved but as soon as I heard the video I remember the words like it was recided in my head thanks for the posting
