About the Poem

This is a poem that my friends and I can relate to. It is an experience I hate and have gone through more than once, with more than one boyfriend - but it happens. It's not that I have never tried drugs myself, but people who abuse them or lie about taking them, are what I have a problem with.

Why?

The smell of the just smoked joint,
Intoxicates my lungs.
My boyfriend pulls me closer to him.
I pull back and look deep into his blood shot eyes.
Does he think I wouldnít notice?
Does he think I wouldnít care?
As he tries to kiss my fatal lips,
I smell the mint he tried to use to cover up.
The pot is too strong and overpowers the mint,
And the cologne his body is smothered in.
A single tear flows down my cheek.
I wonder why he is doing this.
He told me he has stopped and it hurts.
It hurts that he lied.
It hurts that he had the nerve to show up,
Acting and looking high.
What if he gets addicted to drugs?
What if one day he O.D.ís?
I turn around and run into the darkness.
Iím sorry my love,
Iím sorry my friend,
Iím sorry I donít
Understand.
Please tell me

I voted for this poem as I can really relate to what the poet is writing. I was in a long-term relationship 3 yrs ago when I was young and naive to drugs. My fiance used to think he had one-up on me because if this naivity, until I soon learnt his ways. It does hurt when someone treats you like that, no1 deserves it no matter what

The reason why I like this poem is because my boyfriend smokes weed and I asked him to stop but he did not. Everytime I see him and he is high he tries to hide it but i see it in his eyes I love him to death and im going to help him through this addiction even if it takes my life to do it.

KIm
That was very good ! Keep at it and never give it up !
Tanni
thats a very sincere poem and its nice that someone cares so much about another person. I just want to inform you that "pot" is not addicting. it is however a gate-way drug but pot itself is not addicting and u cant O. D. from it.
Ashley
I love the poem that you wrote. My boyfriend loves to smoke and when he tries to hig and kiss me I tell him to get out my face and he always lies about not smoking. I would live to hear another one of your poems!

This poem is really good and it is also true and this has happened to me. The guy thinks he is ok but he isn't and tries to kiss you or maybe more. This poem is a nice poem and keep written more.
Jadie
This peom touched my heart I know a lot of people like that
Nicole
This was a great poem, just make sure you neva start on drugs. It will do things to you you could neva imagine. It explains a lot, nobodys know the real reason y people even start on drugs, it does no good for anyone.
Kara
I loved this poem, it is so true, to many people in todays society are doing drugs. When it is going to stop ? What does it do, if u think it is cool, your wrong, pushing friends away and injuring your body is NOT COOL! I just finished writting a letter to a sucideual friend who does drugs. i hope i got through to him . i really do. it's not only hurting him. it's hurting me.
kat
It touched me because i used to be in a relationship just like that
melanie
many people can say that they have been in love when i no they havent when i read this i feel like she was in love n thats y it hurt her lies do hurt i no ive hurt people by liein trust me he prob feels just as i do he dint mean to do it there is no WHY?
ruthie
i liked this poem, i can relate to it. i was put in the same position where a guy promises not to do drugs, or to drink. but he broke his promise. and it hurts cuz i actualy thought that he would at least try to keep his promise
Michaela
This is a great poem. It reminds me of that there is this girl in my school who has a boyfriend who smokes pot, but she is still sticking with him, and I think that is really brave. But still, I agree on this poem.
Ashley
I THINK THAT THIS POEM IS A REALLY GOOD ONE. ALOT OF PEOPLE NOW HAVE TO DEAL WITH THERE LOVED ONES SMOKING OR DOING SOMETHING OF THE SORT. INCLUDING ME. YOU JUST EXPRESSED HOW I FEEL IN YOUR POEM, THANK YOU! ASHLEY
