Addiction?


It scares me that when I look at you, I can picture my future
I am frightened of how well we connect in every sense of that word
I am terrified of how restlessly I sleep in your warm embrace
I search for your warm scent on my clothing
I turn to you in times of distress
You aren't always available,
But when you are I feel instantaneous joy and relief
It is always fleeting
I seem to be insatiable,
Constantly craving the feeling only you can provide
I fear all of this
I never imagined I would stray from the path I started on
Perhaps having you in my future will be beneficial
This is the thought that I use to justify my behavior
The feeling to continue down this path is overwhelming
It drowns out doubts
Instilled in me by those who claim to know "what's best"
It scares me that when I look at you, I can picture my future
It scares me more when I picture my future without you
