Addicted!


Addition is too much,
Too much I fear, Fear is to sin
Sin is addiction
We not need to be addicted!

Let me not sin
Let me not go against the laws of the library
Let me not be addicted to you, neither you to me
For us to be together, we not need to be addicts.

Laughter is pleasure,
Smile is happiness,
Joy cleanse your soul,
We not need to be addicted!

Addiction is too much,
Too much I fear, fear is sin,
Sin is addiction.
We not need to sin.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
