Poem

Addiction

something living inside me

continually grows

What can I do-

control seems unobtainable

it eats away at my life

I watch myself destroy all hope

hate this ugly part of me

wish I had never known it

I feel so alone

even though millions suffer

because society continues to neglect

allowing silence to prevail

I just want to be free

from my self-made pain

losing more than I gain

each time I give in

haunted by the mirror

my own worst enemy

falling deeper

surrounded by darkness

freedom is the light

I can see, but cannot reach

feeling lost as I wonder

Will I ever break this addiction
