High Regard

I once told a joke about a straight person.

They came after me in droves.

Each one singing the same:

Don’t fight fire with fire.

*

What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.

Do not fight fire with water.

Do not fight fire with foam.

Do not evacuate the people.

Do not sound the alarms.

Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.

Do not barricade the door with damp towels.

Do not wave a white flag out of the window.

Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.

Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.

Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.

Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.

*

When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.

What they mean is: Stand and burn.

while you’re high on opiates, sober life doesn’t seem that bad.

then that first morning of sobriety hits you and you’d rather be dead.

No doubt

All they see is the girl who does drugs, they don’t see the reasons  why she does and they don’t see how badly she struggles.. how much she hates the girl she’s become.

My veins are screaming to be opened
And I’m getting tired of the noise

One of the worst things about being a junkie is waking up without any shit.

Don’t let people treat you like a cigarette, they only use you when they’re bored and step on you when they’re done. Be like drugs, let them die for you. (via fitoo-r)
