Lethal Love Letters 5

Dear Heroin,
How could you do this?
I can’t even breathe
It’s like I am dying
I can’t think
I can’t see
Save me from dying
I scream right out loud
I see all the faces
But you stand out in the crowd
I muster the strength to try to get up and just leave
But it’s like without you
I can’t even breathe!
So I fall down to my feet
And I beg for some mercy
But, it’s like I am stuck
Or like somebody has cursed me
Who now can save me
From this cycle of destruction?
From this world that I now live in
And, I just keep getting stuck in
Goodbye Heroin, please don’t reply.
Goodbye Heroin, I don’t want to die.
