It starts small
Just a speck
In my consciousness
But it grows stronger
More urgent
With every passing second
Tugging at your mind
Finding the weaknesses
Testing your limits
Just for fun
Making noise is its play
So you know it’s always there
Never leaving your side
Super glued to your mistakes
It dances on your heart
Loving you one minute
Laughing in spite of you the next
Tricking your eyes
To show you want you want
But will never get
What a fool I am
For falling for its games
Now I will have to pay
I have no money
Only a soul to offer
So you take that too
Leaving me with nothing
But a craving for more
