One Hit

Just run away

Run into the blackness, the night

Don’t even look back

Even as they call your name, don’t turn around

You don’t need them

Just yourself, that’s all you’ve got,

You and you alone

It’s all you need

Go ahead and run; get your next hit

Another fix of danger and deceit

Nobody is here to tell you

“No, you can’t do that.”

Just you and your mind now

Concocting schemes and plots to get what you want

Nobody can stop you now

Not even Hell’s fire can burn you

You are your own Superman

A hero to yourself

“They won’t be able to control me now!” You yell

All you need is your drug, your escape

“I’ll do anything for this.” You say

“Just one more hit, then I can quit.” You lie

You brought this upon yourself

This nightmare, this disease

Wait until it kills you, then you will regret it all

Stare into the mirror

Look down at your cuts and sores

“Wait, this isn’t what I wanted…” You whisper

Nothing but sadness and anger now

All because you needed that one hit

Synopsis
This is something I wrote for a friend of mine because I was worried about them and how they chose drugs over friendship.
