My Addiction

They tell me to stay away

that you are no good for me.

I hear their voices,

understand their concerns,

but I cannot stay away.

You are my life,

my reason for living,

my addiction.

I could no sooner walk away

as I could stop breathing.

Prove their accusation wrong.

Show them what I see

when I look into your eyes,

your soul.

Show them that you are the one

who makes me whole,

that addiction

is not the end

but the beginning.

    1. Yes, that is my addiction. The need to write, to get what is in my head onto paper. But a lot of what I write is from my characters. I become so immersed in their lives that it bleeds out into my poems. Sounds a little crazy, but then I’m a character based writer. 🙂
