Torn

torn
scorned
thoughts of haste
i need it so bad
but wouldnt it be waste
trying to savor something so good
delightful
frightful
i need someone to hold
im not supposed to feel anything, but im cold.
harboring pain that drives me insane
holding it close to throw it away
give me
something, someone to help me
distortion
retortion
extortion
get rid of this emotion
i want it so bad
but i dont wanna say that youre what I HAD!
something to last
to trust
and thats a must.

The author's comments:
i guess for a while i have drove people away with my increasing drug use. i hate it. i hate how my addiction has become more than just an addiction, it has become a lifestyle. its taken me over. and its insane how it all happens. but when you meet a person thats worth your while and that takes an interest in you and is willing to help, it makes it a little easier. i just want people to know that there is a way out, and its not always death.
