Addiction - Poem by Elizabeth Castleberry

My arms ache
My fingers bleed
But I can't stop the music
Can't quench the need

It flows gently through me
Like a graceful stream
Carrying me along
Light as a dream

Drifting through time
It drowns out my fears
Fully at it's mercy
My will it steers

The sleek wood
Arouses my senses
The course strings
Forget all pretenses

A first-time addiction
Never quite satisfied
You won't make it stop
Once it's inside
