It's An Addicting Need


Why are those who choose,
To express an ignorance...
Said and/or intended to do,
Get the attention they expect?
With this intention not only meant,
But knowing it might ignite an unrest expected?

To then...
Offend those who already know,
Biases spoken and comments made to be heard...
Will upset their sensitivities they are too immature,
To have left behind to leave...
With an acceptance to progress beyond validating,
And confirming they seek subservience sought to get...
To leave their minds consciously limited,
With feelings of being oppressed...
By those they rely to remind them of it?

'It's an addicting need.
One knows quitting provides benefits.
But too painful it is to do 'cold turkey'.
If you've got 'em smoke 'em.
If not...bum 'em.'

What do you mean?

'If those did not feed them this addiction,
The attention given would be missed.
So...
The doing of this continues to exist,
As if a prerequisite needing an approval? '

Exactly.
I see what you mean.
Like a belief one hates to leave.
Fearing to offend the 'pusher'.

'Exactly.
It's a doing that keeps them attached.
Like someone in a relationship feeling trapped.
But refuses to leave because they have adapted.
Although loving the argument,
Without an ending to that to not go back.'

Wanting to be submissive.
Yet having a preference to be dominated.
Once you've been made a 'bottom'.
Hard it is to go back being a 'top'.

'It's all in the observation.'

And a position one eventually prefers.
With the 'sheets' coming out every now and then...
To excite foreplay with an upcoming of attractions.

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
