Addiction (Poem)

Coursing straight through my blood
Incessant raging like a flood
A sanguine affliction
This is my brand new addiction

Overwhelming my mind
Without it no peace I can find
A rough callous friction
This is my wanting addiction

Blades cutting me bone deep
Scars inhibit that restful sleep
A gruesome prediction
This is my painful addiction

Torn down in the gutter
Only crazed words I can mutter
A pitied depiction
This is my damning addiction

Long days and nights pass by
As I wonder each moment why
I’ll find true conviction
This is my dying addiction

The dark flame extinguished
Its wicked cold grip relinquished
Granted benediction
This is my vanquished addiction
