What has happened to this man who I thought was my sole mate & love?
Years ago he had so many dreams and ambitions that he often spoke of.
When we were together he was constantly looking for excuses to party with his friend.
Leaving me feeling lost and empty, and, I thought my heartaches would never end.
No one could predict just what kind of mood he’d be in from day to day.
At times he was so cold, abrupt and rude that he scared people away.
His children said, “When Dad is high he is more approachable!”
What has happened to this man who once was so caring and lovable?
At times he could be such an aloof and uncaring creature
and allow himself to do things passionately cruel in nature.
He swears that the drugs have not changed him a bit,
yet, all his loved ones have regrettably noticed it.
Slowly through the years as he lost his inhibitions,
the pleasure of getting high stole his dreams & ambitions.
Today I am told that he is just a shell of the man I once used to know.
While in denial he was digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole.
Over the years the drugs have taken away his ability to think or function rationally.
Today his children are left caring for a man who has lost his mental capacity.
