Addiction

Rating: 4.5
Addiction is a curse.

Upon an afflicted soul
is a devil made deal,
Built by creative posturing.

In every worthless,
meandering idea,
I welcome
its gaze.

And I am trapped, Left only with a bleeding mind, Powered by over analyzed dreams and a broken engine it's just perfect. such a painful theme...so true i think it's true what i once heard: addiction's like a fence that keeps away your second chance

Wow...powerful analysis going on here - thought this stanza was especially good: 'Lost in the torments of creative restlessness, And the vagrancies of vanity, Are the misgivings of addiction.' You have a style that is all your own and what bleeds from the page here is an open, honest expression of addiction 'upon an afflicted soul'. Your introspection is thought-provoking, memorable and original. j xx

Addiction, As it continues its course, Is the near detachment of my soul....i like this new definition of addiction. The theme is a real challenge. Bravo to you.

'Bleeding mind, ' 'overanalysed dreams' are strong images that offer a glimpse in the world of addicts. A simple and strong poem.
