Poem: Addiction

The uncaring night will take me

and oppress me with its heat.

Leave me wide-eyed

and sleepless

In a tangle of tortured sheets.

 

Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.

 

The over bright dawn will find me

and burden me with its hope.

Leave me confused and restless

tied up tightly in my own rope.

 

Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.

 

The relentless day will trap me

and unsight me with its glare.

Leave me wandering and helpless

your distance has stripped me bare.

 

Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.
