Addicted To You

When you entered, I thought you helped me cope,

All the while it was an imaginary escape, a false hope.

 

Wanting you to a point of need,

My desires, my cravings, I had to feed.

 

My darling, my pleasure, my pain, why do some let you go after they find out what you can do?

But me, the poison you are, it seemed that I was stuck with you.

 

You took me high and then I became low,

And even then, I could not let you go.

 

Lessons from others I did not learn,

And where am I now, what did I earn?

 

I too am asleep; I am no longer here,

As for you, you have moved on–you are everywhere.

Oh life.

Love you. Take care. 🙂

Saying sorry with no heart

Have I ever mentioned that I love King’s David poetry. 🙂
