Habits Like Theirs

They only share drugs in their relationship.
And when there is none to do...
There is nothing for them to discuss.
Nothing worth mentioning,
Without the aid of it!
An emptiness is not admitted.
For fear to sever a connection
They both would miss!
And habits like theirs aren't easily dismissed.
Not like 'that'.
Not for this!
Since the only thing important to them...
Is how to sustain a 'dependable' thing
Between them.
Like the one they have...
That is!
And what they have may be called?
Is okay.
As long as they...
Are getting 'high'!
