Short Poems

1. “The Endless Pain”
Life will never be the same
Since you left me with this pain
Heartbreak and tears, day by day
Wondering if you’re okay

2. “The Demon Within”
A monster crept inside of you
A demon that you could not subdue
My attempts to help were all in vain
I watched in agony through the endless pain

3. “The Memories Remain”
Memories of you linger here
Your laugh, your smile, your gentle cheer
I wish that you were still around
But your addiction took you down

4. “The Goodbye”
I never thought I’d say goodbye
But that word had to come by
I Miss you more each day that goes by
It’s difficult to think it’s the final goodbye.

Medium Poems

1. “The Void”
Oh how it feels
To lose a beloved soul
To a demon of addiction
Leaving nothing but an empty hole

The memories flood
The tears never stop
How could this have happened
Why did it have to be you to drop

My heart aches
For the time we lost
Wishing we could bring you back
At any cost

Rest softly now
In the great beyond
You are loved
And will never be gone

2. “The Battle”
You fought so hard
Against the grip of the drug
But even the strongest warriors
Can fall victim to its tug

We watched helplessly
As you struggled to break free
Hoping and praying
That tomorrow would better be

We saw the fight in your eyes
The will to not give in
But the addiction was stronger
A battle no one could win

Despite the outcome
We will remember the war
And honor your memory

3. “The Memories”
Though you are gone
Your spirit lives on
In the laughter and joy
We shared until dawn

We will never forget
The person you were
The love you gave
And the memories we incurred

We cherish the moments
We had with you here
And hold them close
When we shed a tear

You are dearly missed
But never forgotten
Our love for you
Will remain unbroken.

Long Poems

Ode to a Lost Love

I lost you to the demon of addiction,
A bond that I could never understand,
I watched helplessly as you spiraled out of control,
Clutching at straws, looking for a hand.

The pain in my heart was too deep to bear,
As you slipped further away each day,
I prayed for a miracle, a sign of hope,
But it seemed like God was far away.

We tried every remedy, every cure,
But the darkness had already set in,
Your eyes, once bright with life and love,
Were now a reflection of sin.

I watched you waste away, bit by bit,
And I wondered if I had failed you,
If I could have done more to hold you close,
To keep you safe and true.

But addiction is a cunning beast,
A monster that preys on the weak,
And no matter how hard we tried,
It seemed like it did not seek to leave.

And now all I have are memories,
Of a love that was pure and true,
Of moments shared in joy and laughter,
And dreams that never came true.

The pain of losing you to addiction,
Will forever be etched in my heart,
But I hold on to the hope of someday,
When we’ll meet again and never be apart.

So I say goodbye to you, my love,
With tears and a heavy heart,
And hold on to the promise of redemption,
And the grace of a new start.
