Addicted To Him - Poem by Mandy Author2

Does he know? ,
I’m dependent on him,
When he falters,
So do I,
He’s my emotional control,
My confidant and friend,
My heart,
Mind and soul,
How could I begin to explain this? ,
Words are not enough,
To tell of my gratitude,
Yet I shy away,
For my ruin is in his hands,
I trust that he would not,
Knowingly hurt me,
But a single unkind word,
Can cause,
Unrepairable damage,
He has the power,
To destroy me,
With him I am,
Vulnerable,
Yet safer than,
I’ve ever been before,
When he offers to solve my problems,
It is so tempting,
But I cannot accept,
For when he is gone,
I will be on my own,
Once again left,
To fend for myself,
I must learn to cope,
With his absence,
Must overcome,
This addiction,
To his presence
