Addicted To You

I got addicted to you
The same way a smoker
Gets addicted to nicotine

I craved the bitter taste
Of you on my lips
And the way you leaned in

I yearned for the smell
Of your exhaling breath
As you got rid of all the pain

And I missed having you
To turn to during tough times
When I couldn't stand the rain

I thought about quitting once
And giving up on us
But it's too late; I'm addicted

The world can see our love
As some hateful crime
But it's okay to feel conflicted

My mind is already stale
For it's too late to save myself
And I truly mean it

All because I got addicted to you
The same way a smoker
Gets addicted to nicotine

I love this! It describes how I once felt, and I love the description, and the metaphorical language! I also love the repetition at the end! You have some true talent!
