Default the horse - a heroin poem

the horse is another word for heroin. has anyone else read this before?

You are now larger than life
Tens of thousands screaming your name
Too much too fast
You are not sure this undeserved success will last

The pain that fueled your art
Is still tearing you apart
What you need is a friend
One who will be with you until the end

I am the Horse
I don't care
About your fortune or fame
I am the Horse
I don't care
About your family or name

Hop on my back for a free ride
Don't believe them about slow suicide
Together we will go and hide
Our bond will last a lifetime

I'll ease your pain
I'll numb your brain
Your friends and family will not understand
How we can be such intimate friends

Who else makes you feel this way
As I take your troubles away
I have removed all your doubt
Isn't this what love is all about

You are young and strong
Can handle anything
To an empty God
You are now praying

It is now too late
You have sealed your fate
Once more push the needle in
Once more inject the venom

My will is stronger than yours
Now that I am under your skin
You are flying so high
Who is listening as your children cry

I am the Horse I don't care
I have many pretty names
I am the Horse I don't care
I have always been the same

Riding in the back of a limousine
A spoon, a syringe and a full magazine
Whether you're in a penthouse suite
Lying in an alley or a shooting gallery

To me they are all the same
As long as I own your veins
You thought you had no innocence left to lose
At first, you chose me, now it's me that chooses you

You thought that money
Was the only price to pay
You will do whatever I require
To remain bound in my chains

Call my name
Every time you call
The deeper into me
You will fall

I am the Horse
I don't care
About what you have become
I am the Horse
I don't care
To my power you have succumbed

It was your pain that brought you to me
It was your pain you thought I took away
It is your pain that keeps you with me
Try to leave, I will increase it a thousand-fold everyday

In the end
You will not care about your family or friends
This is the end
Your very last fix
It is time I ford you across the River Styx

I am the Horse
I don't care
Who is the next in line
I am the Horse
I welcome the curious
Hey you, how about a free ride

Makes me think of heroine by the velvet underground, dark stuff:


I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vein
And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I have made the big decision
I'm gonna try to nullify my life
'Cause when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death
And you can't help me not, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor's suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man can not be free
Of all of the evils of this town
And of himself, and those around
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off than dead
Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
And all the politicians makin' busy sounds
And everybody puttin' everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

'Cause when the smack begins to flow
Then I really don't care anymore
Ah, when the heroin is in my blood
And that blood is in my head
Then thank God that I'm as good as dead
Then thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know

That is a very good poem indeed. There's alot of rubbish out there when it comes to poems b ut that one cuts the mustard. Remember every word if you've been there, and I'm sure some of you have....
