Breaking The Habbit


These little monsters dressed in white
Fill the time and bring delight
As all my thoughts seem to go
My desires make the addiction grow
This vicious cycle, that dark red glow
My dear friend, please let me go..

These cold needle sweaten shiver down my spine
Makes me forget why I drew the line
Like awakening from my overslept delusions
Waking up with so much confusion
This vicious cycle, that dark red glow
My dear friend, I want to let you go..

The hunger that slowly drives me insane
The craving so hard to retain
For it was twelve years of my live my biggest sin
And this battle for control I will win
This vicious cycle, that dark red glow
My dear friend, I had to let you go..

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
