Addiction

 

Turn the lights down low

Watch the shadows creep

See them huddle in the corners

Baring fangs

Sharpening claws and flexing wings

They know, they know

 

Pull out the instruments

Snip, snip, snip

Gasp, lean back, onto soft pillows

The shadows move in

 

I am flying

Above my bed

Past the roof

I dnace on the clouds

I float to the stars

Feel their fire and ice 

See the darkness

 

It brings me back

The liquid

Warm and cold

No more now

No more space

 

The shadows move away

As I flare my lamp

Addiction surpasses the mental state

 

It's time to patch

And make my list

I cut myself cooking

I stubbed my toe

Do I need help?

The shadows shake thier heads

 

They like me

And they know I cannot live without them
