Addict

I am an addict
if only an addict to myself.
I am insecure afraid
of never being loved by anyone else.
Afraid to quit
to give up that rope,
the one that I cling to
that gives me hope.
Petrified of gaining weight,
of becoming fat,
being a disgusting disgrace.
I am an addict
weak and sad.
An addict of my fears
I admit to myself
that's what I am.
Trapped in my head
looking for an antidote
to reverse the dread
I am an addict
locked up in myself
scared I'll never be truley loved
lost to everyone else.

This is very well written and moving. The repetition of phrases in this makes it all the more enjoyable to read. Good job getting deep!
