It's too bad they took off the poems they were beautiful. Thank you to whoever wrote them and I would love to have a copy.

wow (Anonymous)

they would not do this for the Brants when people were so cruel to them. I don't understand?? There were people telling them that Mike got what he deserved and to bad Tim wasn't killed also because they were trash, so why the difference. Not that I approve of any of the slander on here espically on someones obituary page. They even kept the Brant story up far longer than the 10 days. Why, Norwalk Reflector, how do you decide between one cruel remark and another. I think the person who does the editing on this page has his own set of rules. And don't come on here and try to deny it because alot of the Brants was copied by the family and it is all over the internet via myspace pages for everyone to see what you allowed to be printed about this grieving family also. And alot of it was very racial. Right out cruel!

I feel if you can't say something nice to someone on this page, obituaries, then you need say nothing at all. There is a time and place for all that but not here. This is to honor the deceased, have a little respect, that goes for you also Norwalk Reflector. You owe the Brant family a very big apology in my opinion.

And Mrs. Conley, I wrote the one poem simpply called heroin and the other was unknown. The one called heroin I found on the internet about a girl who was on crack and had overdosed and it was said to have been found in her pocket. True or not, I don't know. I changed it around to heroin, unfortuantly I am a parent of 2 heroin addicted children, so it came very easy for me to change it around to fit the drug and all the demons it cast upon a family. Why it was deleted, I don't understand?? It's not gossip, or putting someone down. It is true, every word of it but I guess you have to live it to know it. And who on here who has a loved one using heroin could dispute one word of it??? I am going to post it again because it might just reach someone who is about to make that life altering choice. Maybe they will think twice. So Norwalk reflector, if that is so wrong, then delete it again. If they do delete them and you don't get to copy it just let me know. I can very easily send you a copy via email or postal mail, I know your address, and crystals. God Bless!

HEROIN (Anonymous)

Heroin

I destroy homes, I tear families apart.

I can take your children, and that's just the start.

I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold.

The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.

If you need me I'm easily found, I live all around you.

I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door.

I have many names, but there's one you know best,

I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is heroin .

My power is awesome, try me and you'll see,

But if you do, you may never break free.

Just try me once and I might let you go,

But try me twice, and I'll own your soul.

When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie,

you do what you have to--just to get high.

The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms

will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms,

You'll lie to your mother, you'll steal from your dad,

When you see their tears, you should feel sad.

But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised,

I'll be you conscience, I'll teach you my ways.

I take kids from parents, and parents from kids,

I turn people from God, and separate friends.

I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride,

I'll be with you always--right by your side.

You'll give up everything-your family, your home,

your friends, your money, then you'll be alone.

I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give,

when I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live.

If you try me be warned-this is no game,

if given the chance, I'll drive you insane.

I'll ravish your body, I'll control your mind,

I'll own you completely, your soul will be mine.

The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed,

the voices you'll hear, from inside your head.

The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see,

I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.

But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart,

that you are mine, and we shall not part.

You'll regret that you tried me, they always do,

but you came to me, not I to you.

You knew this would happen, many times you were told,

but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.

You could have said no, and just walked away,

if you could live that day over, now what would you say?

I'll be your master, you will be my slave,

I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave.

Now that you have met me, what will you do?

Will you try me or not? It's all up to you.

I can bring you more misery than words can tell,

Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell.

MISS HEROIN (An...

MISS HEROIN

SO NOW, YOU'VE GROWN TIRED OF THE 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."

Its called censorship. Let people have a comment box, but you can't really say what you want to. Even if its not libelous or defamatory towards an individual. Having an opinion is all it takes to get removed from here. Our founding fathers would be turning over in their graves over it, but some individuals like to play God and remove whatever posts don't suit their personal agendas.

NOT REALLY. Here's how it SHOULD read:

We welcome your participation (to a certain extent) in article and blog comment threads, Live Discussions and other discussion forums, where we encourage you to analyze, comment on and even challenge the norwalkreflector.com's articles, blogs, reviews and multimedia features. (Just realize that after we read what you submit we will immediately remove it from our web page) It is our hope that you'll take the opportunity to interact with leaders in our community, with the journalists, editors and management of the Norwalk Reflector and with other norwalkreflector.com users. Now, we don't really mean this, but we have to type it to cover our collective asses in case someone should slander another reader. We know that we are not exactly Woodward and Bernstein here, but we try. Actually taking the time to form an objective opinion would be entirely too challenging for us. If you really want hard news and commentary this is not the paper you are looking for. Try something like the Boston Sun Times or even the Detroit Free Press. If you need to find some hay from a local auction we are your local paper. Even though we encourage your comments, we don't really want to hear the truth and the honest thoughts of our readers, so anything that you say that might be even a tad bit inflammatory, we WILL remove.

anyone notice (...

this was the most posted comment except for heroin found in apartment and all of a sudden poof, its all gone. Now we have this boring crap to comment on.........looks like no one cares reflector. You want these hot heated comments on here till someone in your cirlce gets their toes stepped on and then it's a complete different story. Or until someone buys what they want from you. Someone put out the big bucks to hush these two stories. Wonder who and what the connection is. As always the reflector takes care of their own!!!

and this is why...

I keep these pages in my favorites folder. Got one up on the reflector but then if they don't know to add to their favorites doesn't really matter. Guess I'll let them know on a different page. Good looking out for this bunch of drug addicts reflector. A family who does drugs together, dies together!!!
