The pain in my heart
Sadly persists
Through decades of torment
It is… what it is.

The darkness,…pervasive
It won’t let me go
So lascivious.

Driven to madness
Nights without sleep
Haunted by memories
Embedded so deep.

The pull of addiction
Too much to resist
Has left me damaged
Has set me adrift.

No end in sight
Can’t contain this desire
Can’t stop the longing
Can’t put out this fire.
