The Addiction

By , Cochranville, PA
You feel nothing
You are numb to everything around you
Words are meaningless
Even if they come from you
You barely eat
All you do is sleep
You are on guard
Ready to defend
Ready to deny the addiction that has taken you away
I never knew the real you
I knew the addiction
But now
I have met you
For the first time in my life
I know you
I see who you really are inside
You never meant to hurt me
I know it was the drugs
They took over
You were a slave to your addiction
But now it’s over
Then came the treatments
Everyday you were sick
And after a while the depression set in
Then one morning you came downstairs
Tears staining your shirt and face
I let the news wash over my
I was surprisingly calm
I went upstairs and silently cried
“Everyone messes up” I think
Who knows?
Maybe this is the start of a new beginning
