Intended for Audiences 21 Years and Older – A Poem

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at C Mich chapter.

Intended for Audiences 21 Years and Older

The bloodstreams, the inner walls of your veins

darting, dashing, sprinting, faster than trains

through your body, staining teeth

I wreck everything; from outside your skin to underneath.


Glass scattered in the streets

bloodstains on fresh bed sheets

stomach liner and brain power

inhalation of unknown powders.


I sneak up your esophagus, behind your back,

memory loss knocking you off track

mind spinning, sinking, slipping away

disorient of money, time, and day


I hide well, you blame anyone but me

they say I’m trouble, you disagree.

Nail polish remover and Listerine,

your relations disastrous, anything but clean.
