|Sadly, if drugs are your escape, there will always be stress in your life.
I found this in the "Honest Reviews Only" forum and decided to check it out. I'm glad I did.
This is an observant and insightful piece to be sure. You really stepped inside the mind of a junkie; disappointed, disillusioned, and generally looked down upon by society. How can we help those we refuse to get close to? Ever since the times of Jesus and before there have been people who speak love and never show it. As my parish priest told me some 6 years ago, "It's easy to love the people in China, but so hard to love your brothers and sisters, your neighbors, your friends." It's easy to love the people we can't see, yet so hard to love the messed up people we see on a daily basis. A very strong point to make in four stanzas!
Stylistically, there were some small inconsistencies in phrasing here. In the last two stanzas, you ended with a single brief thought, like a last stab at your point, which I liked. In the first two, however, the last line is more dragged out, less terse. I think this poem would have more power if you tweaked it in a way that would make those last lines shorter and more rigid. Other than that, your flow is great.
Overall good job and can't wait to see more of your writing!
Enjoy your life, and let your writing enrich it.
PS-Your port is about to be raided and, since I know how hard it is to get a new piece looked at, I'll highlight this one in my port too. :D
