GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

Empty House

Creaks of the rotting floorboard,

Groans of the ancient staircase,

Wails of the rusty door hinges,

This is the heart of a lonely person.

Her Addiction: A Poem About Drugs

Standing in the doorway,

Gentle as a blue jay,

She seems to be open,

When really she's just coping.

Trying to solve problems with those drugs and pills,

Trying to make sense of it all with stuff that kills,

She craves that next high now,

Because she just hit a new low.

At Your Grave: A Poem about Drunk Driving

You told me he invited you to the bar tonight,

Even though you're underage.

You told me he said it would be cool to go a few rounds,

And that he got you in the illegal way.

I told you not to go,

But you went, and became beer's slave,

And you took the car,

So now I'm singing this to your grave.

      Thanks, Kiss andTales. I put hard work into these poems so that kids that stumble across this Hub would get that drugs and such are wrong. Thanks again!
