Addictive Personality - Poem by susette varga

Addictive personality
So very hard to shake
Haphazard decisions
Bad choices
Mostly made

To normality
The obvious
Cannot be seen

Cat walking
As you dance
The wooden plank

Smiling candidly
Honest intentions
Become obsolete
With each step
You take

Self loathing takes you
Very close to the edge

Reality for you
It seems
Is merely
A trick card
Game of bridge

All honest intensions
Are now obscure
In all you do
And say

Unaware of the heartache
Or the havoc that you wreak
Inconsistency and denial
Oppose the stability
And regularity
That you seek

Happy in your misery
You embrace

Selfish and self centred
Thinking only of yourself
Full of self importance
Ill natured to a fault

Intolerant and dogmatic
Patience very thin
The way you speak
Of others
Is rotten to the core

Take take take
Never giving
No pride
Nor shame at all

You wear a self
Destruct button
Proudly as
Your badge

Addicted to legal highs
And illegal too
No quick fix can help you
Only you can help you

    The poets on this site are in a framework of conditioning with rewards for posting and comments This hooks addictive personalities and like rats on a treadmill they churn out so-called poems. Good poem. (Report)Reply
