    It makes you believe in it
    Robs you of who you are
    Rapes your belief system
    Stops you from going far

    Waits to attack you from behind
    When you least expect
    No matter the crime
    This beast forgets in a week or less

    Seeks your death, teeth in necks
    Feasts on fresh meat and flesh
    Warpaths feeble threats...

    Needs to get peace to wreck
    Warm hearts feed it best
    Leech infects in your head
    Blood gives it strength

    Hypnotized thinkin like
    "This drug is your friend"

    The evil takes heaps of shapes
    Awful toll on your head
    Parasite has survived
    Off the souls of the dead.

    Constant dread, junkie wants the crack
    And the cost is death
    Coffin breathed monkey on your back
    Isn't often fed

    Bled dry, sets sights low with it's head high
    Dead sky - red eyes glow in the dense night
    Ease of prey has a spot, at the top
    But it matters not exactly what its leeched away... it'll snatch the lot

    Nurtures the bad seeds and kills parts that's sacred
    Empties your soul of love and fills hearts with hatred
    Preaches its bible, conceals half the pages
    And teaches disciples the skilled art of fakeness

    ...addiction can be a whimsical ride as well as a backstabbing fulfillment of time wasted, trying to numb everything surrounding a person.

    I enjoyed reading your poem...

    thanks for reading. it's not actually about drugs/addiction though haha, it probably seems like that on the surface. some people thought it was about religion or a disease or something as well, it's actually about a person, but that probably doesn't make sense to most people... i could explain it in depth but explaining the meaning too much might take away from it and i'm sure noone's that interested to begin with haha. it is intentionally open to interpretation but yeah, every line does mean something very specific in my mind so it's not just being ambiguous for the sake of it..

    Yw, and it makes perfectly good sense, although I might have taken it a tad to literal, when trying to, um, well, decypher it...:scared:

    ...I'd like to see and read more of your material in the future though...

    If you wouldn't mind PM'ng me your intended meaning, I always like to interpret then hear the authors intentions. It helps me write ambiguous pieces.

    Only just realized there were some more replies to this, thanks for the props... Interesting to read other people's interpretations of it too.

    @patrown, no need for pm as it's not super personal or anything haha.

    Basically 'it' is a type of person, a narcissistic or sociopathic type, that lacks a soul or any real human characteristics (despiting mimicking them very well) and basically just uses other people for their own gain...

    Some of the lines probably seem ambiguous as fuck but they all have a very explainable (albeit openended) meaning. E.g. the "junkie wants the crack" bit, by crack I mean the narcissist's need for attention/praise/admiration etc... or 'narcissistic supply', by junkie I mean they fiend for that shit like it's a drug, basically. Probably self explanatory for some, but I find some people just don't think in that metaphorical kinda way, so sorry if I'm stating the obvious.

    The "parasite feeds off the souls of the dead" bit is kinda specific to people like that, if a supposed 'close friend' of theirs (who in reality was barely a casual acquaintance) were to die, they would try and get sympathy from the person's death by making out like they were their best friend or some shit, when in all likelihood they feel absolutely nothing for the person who died and are pathologically incapable of doing so. Probably doesn't make much sense to anyone who hasn't had much first hand experience with this sorta shit but yeah haha, hope that helps clear up my intended meaning, still cool that other people are interpreting it differently though!
