Addicted

***

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.

    Very nice poem Jared… I especially liked this line…”The reality I deal with every single day,
    you’re the addiction that will always stay.”
