Addiction
I crave it more each day
It runs my life, fills my blood
my addiction, my habit
that which controls me
my obsession, my love
my life, my world, my loss
give me more and more
let it take me over
I am useless without
what is running my life
one last time, last hit
one last high, one last round
what now controls me
because it became me

Let me break free,
cut these chains away,
I need to breathe again.
To think on my own,
to live on my own.
alone, I cannot let it be,
with you, I can end this
I must find the secret,
escape this trap
change my ways.
soon enough I will
get my addiction,
before it destroys me

For the record I am not a drug addict of any kind, though I have dealt with it a time in my life. This writing is about anything at all that human nature has allowed to take over your life, whether it be a drug, love, greed.... whatever the center's obsession may be.

Sometimes you just gotta go to somebody who has the ability to get things done, someone you respect: teacher or social worker and just yell HELP!!!! Lovers and friends are no good at this sort of thing! My brother just died from destroying his heart with 20 years of cocaine, then a followup with alcohol. He was only 52, and had become an abusive man who lived in squalor---alone.
