Jessica Robert Poems
Addiction (Yet To Be Rebroken)
What`s more powerful than a child`s disappointment?
It shatters the heart that you have failed them
And that everything they were ever proud of you for
Has died and left them feeling lost
If you can't do something
What's the chances of them breaking an obsession?
Could they do it?
Or would they follow your footsteps and fail as well?
By a child, I meant me
I was so proud of you
When I thought you broke the addiction
And crushed it under your strength
You almost seemed mighty
And an inspiration to any future troubles I may face
But as you broke ...
Running from your fears
Running from your pain
Running from the trouble that keeps you lying awake
Running from the horror
Running from the stillness before a tempest
Where are you going?
You don't have a clue
You need to run
And only run
