Never could I project a beautiful notion
without such an innocently born devotion.
It may indeed be the part of my brain
addiction has known to be places I remain.
Your thoughts are where there is solace,
that slay the pain inside and do call us.
To think ideas that become like addictions
to our selfish selves that are lost in fictions.
But I know my truth and I speak it often
and your eyes I have seen they do soften.
The reality I deal with every single day,
you’re the addiction that will always stay.
I do not manifest any drunken imaginings.
You are in my heartbeat always happening.
