Addiction


A love once lost, my feelings tossed
Thrown away to decay, my pride it cost

Memories that had been blown away by the wind
Somehow creep back, I feel temptation again

Once they were gone, or so I thought
But the heart never forgets it was cheaply bought

My skin and bones is all I have
This disease stole from me the love I had

My soul and spirit are gone as well
I need to repo them back from hell

An endless struggle I feel like I’m racing the clock
I wish life came with a warning lable
Instead of a pipe in a sock

I strive to keep you out of my mind
But you’re a sleeping tiger
Awakened by the dropp of a line.
