Life Poem


You are what I love
And crave for so badly that nothing's ever enough.
Somehow creeping to my head,
that it's for the best of me.
Complicated, it gets.
My choices are weakening, I'm not that person anymore.
Delusional, I'm going.
For that thing speaks louder than my sounds of pain.
A joy that never lets me rise,
I'm somehow in the middle.
Of what's right and wrong,
Letting nothing else matter but you.

It's so suffocating.
But I just can't overpower what I let inside of me.
Oh you are what I love yes,
even though I know it's not healthy...

    Melody, thanks deeply for understanding.
    I did, even though it turned out very simple.

    June Bugg-
    Thanks, it was a little reaosn for the title.

    I'm really glad I picked this time too.
    And your welcome.
    I had this problem too, not with a drug but with a person.
    I think this was the hardest for me to write.

    Thanks so so so much.
    I was hoping that'd happen! (Report) Reply
