I love reading poetry, and I have recently began to write some of my own. I am an amateur artist,I have many interests, I am hoping to use my experiences in my writing.

Free verse about addiction
"The Phoenix" by Jackarrie

all alone nobody to talk to
in her small abode
a fragile zone

no more social hugs
or class A drugs
with no money,
unable to escape
fear of fear
darkness closing

all that was pure is lost
believing that her
cries fell on deaf ears
loss of  emotion
yet not wanting to die

time can heal.
the lacerated wound

her only option
was to make a choice
to live
and she did

found inner strength
a new door opened
bravely she walked through

so can you

Author Notes
The phoenix rising from the ashes is likened to beating an addiction, one has to have a strong will and major strength, but it can be done and it has been done.
