Addiction

You’re like an addiction
I drug I crave
You make me feel stronger
You make me feel so brave

You’re like an addiction
I know in the end you’ll be bad
but for the time being
I need you like mad

You’re like an addiction
You’ve taken over my life
Everyday I go around
Not knowing if I’ll survive

You’re like an addiction
the day just goes on and on
Your face repeats in my brain
like an overplayed song
You’re like an addiction
I’m pulling out my hair
You’ve left me on the cold, cold floor
gasping for air

You’re like an addiction
So may thoughts run through my head
my teeth grind even harder
as I curse you for leaving me half dead

You’re like an addiction
It feels like I’m drowning in dark water
plunging down, father and farther
the numbness sadly makes my need stronger

You’re like an addiction
I couldn’t bare it if you were to go
You keep luring me in
I should’ve said no

Favorite Quote:
Take a chance and never let go. Risk everything, lose nothing. Don't worry about anything anymore. Cry in the rain and speak up loud. Say what you want and love who you want. Be yourself and not what people want to see. Never blame anyone if you get hurt because you took the risk and you decided who was worth the while

Julia This is great!!!!
