"Decide that you want it more than you fear it."


It calls my name
Tempting me, begging me
I’ve been able to ignore it
Yet this time it’s different

This time I give in
It’s lurking around the corner
I’ve been clean for so long
Hey, I might as well, right?

It tastes so good
And at last I’m satisfied
Yet I’m left with a sense of
Shame, guilt, and numbness

I thought I wanted this
More than anything in the world
Thought I needed this
More than I needed air

Now all I feel is
Shame, guilt, numbness
That’s all that’s left
After binging on short term bliss
