Love Thief

Love is a disease of the mind
A poison to the soul
A thief of the heart
Stolen, still beating, from one's chest
It is a drug that all people crave
Addiction is impossible to escape
We want it
We need it
Dying to reach it
And once we have it
One is utterly oblivious to the rest of the world
Eternally trapped in a nightmare
Disguised as a dream
Adn then the world is ripped at the seams
There eyes slowly opening
Being exposed to reality
As they awaken
Only to discover they had been mistaken
The heart is then locked away
imprisoned deep within
And there is shall stay
Til another thief breaks in

thank u! thieves are definitely a muse of mine, because their motives always differ.

I really like the sighly sinister tone this poem has to it, while also using very dyrmatic imagery. It's very good. Beyond one typo, it's great!
