Addicted - Poem by Mitzi Albright

You think you know me so well
But you’ve never lived my personal hell
I’m fairly sure you don’t have a clue
Of the things I’ve had to suffer through

You see the smile I wear on my face
And all the dreams I seem to chase
But you really don’t know where I’m from
Always living my life under the gun

I would settle just for some peace of mind
But I never let myself unwind
I know I want more than you can give
So let me go, just let me live

You think you know what it is I need
But it’s nothing more than a dirty deed
I’m desperately weak and falling for you
Although I know it’s not what I should do

I’m not as strong as I appear to be
I’m blind to the things that I should see
I cry out in misery every night
Just praying for strength for one more fight

You seem to think I feel no pain
Cause I hide my tears in the pouring rain
And each time I see you walk out the door
I silently scream inside for more

Why is it you who’s in my soul?
Why do you care, I want to know?
If this is love, I need to be sure
If not then I need to find a cure

I’m in a battle I feel I can’t win
I just don’t know where to begin
If only you’d tell me what is the deal
I’d gather my thoughts and know how to feel

But you capture my love then push me away
Close the door then call the next day
Like you put up a fight that you are going to lose
I don’t quite know what’s wrong with you

I guess just give me all you can
Till you figure out a better plan
I’m addicted to you and now it’s too late
We’re closer than ever so maybe its fate
