Addiction - Poem by Brian Hinckley

Bursting at the seams,
the words roll from my tongue.
Searing like hot iron,
they burn your soul.

I dream in vivid colors,
they twist and spin in the darkness.
Tearing open your heart,
my words flow in you.

Your body and soul are mine,
trapped in my words.
Violent or soft, you don't care,
you enjoy the ecstasy I give you.

My words drip like honey
on your waiting tongue.
Savor it, taste it,
they go down smooth.

Looking everywhere but up,
you search in vain.
I am higher than you, above you,
but my hand is always waiting to pull you up.

I don't say what you want,
I don't feel what you desire.
Candy coated lyrics
keep you coming back to me.

Sizzling heat
sears your soul, demanding more.
You need more, but baby,
I think you're addicted to me.
