The sweat chills my back as I sleep through withdrawal,
Feeling the pain though there is none at all
I’ve lost all cognition and I can’t seem to think
Closing in on the edge, near the brink
The world rushes around me
Sweat moistens my palm
The rush of the high
Leaving me perfectly calm
I have been told that being addicted is bad
And that it’s wrong and it’s crude
But I really can’t help it
Cause I’m addicted to you.

The author's comments:
That finding someone who makes you feel good and full of life is addicting, and it hurts so bad to be away from them, but feels so great when you are around them. I had become addicted to that feeling and it hurt so bad to lose it. Addiction is bad, but if you are addicted to the right things, is it as bad as we think? I think not.
