Lost within the self
this drug taking over the mind,
as I become a person that I don't know.
Only thoughts I have
are upon quenching this burning hunger
that is never satisfied.
So willing to let go
of everything around me,
those I love,
the morals that I have,
just to feel that sensation again
and block out the world around me.
Willing to do just about anything
to get to it,
not caring anymore
of my own health or safety.
For it doesn't matter,
only to find that sensation
which will take me away
to the fantasy world that it does bring.
As it slowly destroys me inside,
and yet I care not of it
for nothing truly matters when I am on it.
Lowering myself
into a dark world that it does bring,
losing the true essence of who I am
just to feel a moment of happiness again.
But it is only a moment,
and it takes more and more
for me to find that feeling again.
Till finally
I am trapped within its power
and there is no way that I can get out.
It takes control of me
and there is nothing I can do
to get away from it.
Lost within this world of addiction,
drowning within its dark abyss,
letting it slowly kill me from within.
