Take Me in Your Arms

(Miss Heroin)

So now, little man, you've grown tired of grass
LSD, goofballs, cocaine and hash,
and someone, pretending to be a true friend,
said, "I'll introduce you to Miss Heroin."

Well honey, before you start fooling with me,
just let me inform you of how it will be.

For I will seduce you and make you my slave,
I've sent men much stronger than you to their graves.
You think you could never become a disgrace,
and end up addicted to Poppy seed waste.

So you'll start inhaling me one afternoon,
you'll take me into your arms very soon.
And once I've entered deep down in your veins,
The craving will nearly drive you insane.

You'll swindle your mother and just for a buck.
You'll turn into something vile and corrupt.
You'll mug and you'll steal for my narcotic charm,
and feel contentment when I'm in your arms.

The day, when you realize the monster you've grown,
you'll solemnly swear to leave me alone.
If you think you've got that mystical knack,
then sweetie, just try getting me off your back.

The vomit, the cramps, your gut tied in knots.
The jangling nerves screaming for one more shot.
The hot chills and cold sweats, withdrawal pains,
can only be saved by my little white grains.

There's no other way, and there's no need to look,
for deep down inside you know you are hooked.
You'll desperately run to the pushers and then,
you'll welcome me back to your arms once again.

And you will return just as I foretold!
I know that you'll give me your body and soul.
You'll give up your morals, your conscience, your heart.
And you will be mine until, "Death Do Us Part" Poem By: Anonymous Submitted by: Laura By: Elia and Laura http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002861.htm http://www.easyread.drugabuse.gov/heroin-facts.php http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heroin http://www.wowzone.com/heroin.htm Thank you Dr. Dyan Kimia for giving us information about heroin. By: Laura By: Laura By:Laura www.youtube.com If addicts stop heroin, they have withdrawal symptoms, which can begin as early as a few hours after the last drug
administration. These symptoms include muscle and bone pain, diarrhea, vomiting , insomnia, cold flashes with goose bumps (“cold turkey”), and kicking movements (“kicking the habit.") Users experience severe craving for the drug during withdrawal, which can cause continued abuse and/or relapse. accompanied with a dry mouth, a warm flushing of the skin, heaviness of the extremities, and clouded thinking. Following this initial feeling, the user goes “on the nod,” alternating between wakeful and drowsy states. Heroin makes people feel sleepy, like they're in a dream. Heroin makes the pupils (the black circle in the center of each eye) get very small. Medications include buprenorphine and methadone, both of which work by binding to the same cell receptors as heroin but more weakly, helping a person wean off the drug and reduce craving; and naltrexone, which blocks opioid receptors and prevents the drug from having an effect. Another drug called naloxone is sometimes used as an emergency treatment to counteract the effects of heroin overdose. 10 facts Introduction 10.
