The Addict






One more pill, it's all I need
I promise no more after this
Track marks hidden, so others can't see
My addiction has taken me into the abyss
Lying, stealing
From loved ones
Watching, waiting
As my world comes undone
Anger and lashing out
Have become my new norm
Spiraling out of control
My addiction, a raging storm.
Apologies are meaningless
Always blaming others
Leaving in my path broken hearts
Fathers, sisters, brothers, mothers
My addiction rules my world
Destroying everything I had
It eats my body and my soul
How much longer will I last?
