Just one more drink you told me
Just one more pill you said
I wake up every morning
And expect to find you dead

The drug is your master
That won't set you free
You choose it over life
You choose it over me

When you finally open your eyes
I hope you will see
You're not only killing yourself
You're killing me

I love you more than anything
But it's getting really tough
I pray you can see that
I pray you've had enough

Guide that inspired this poem: 



I like this poem- it relates to me both personally and professionally. It is simple and to the point without being too direct and concise. I like that you are giving a voice to a person who loves an addict, but is hurt by the actions of the disease.
