Addicted To Love


The journey of anyone facing (substance) addictions, that moment when they know they need to quit. One quitting that makes them feel so much more than a quitter.


Well, it's 3.36 am, a beautiful night, 

With realms of positivity, filled inside,

I have a dream, I want to chase, 

A wake-up call, a life to embrace.


There are so many chapters, I wish to pen down, 

Each having a script, the script of me,

Who I am, may so never be known, 

But O' can I see, who I want to be.


And one of my chapters is surely this one, 

Where my story seems to have just begun,

With immense courage,

How I lifted this black jacket covering my chest, 

The surreal will, with which I decided the rest.


Intriguing myself I smile in surprise, 

How it was such a simple disguise, 

Pleasure and pain intertwined for long, 

Eventually bringing me to where I belong.


4.06, while the clock still ticks, 

How I cannot stop, no I do not want to stop, 

Want to capture all this to somewhere lean on, 

As I know there'll be times when I won't move on.


Guilt will be more, haven't I let everyone down, 

Yes, I surrender only to gain back the crown, 

Love is the motive behind my will, 

I promise myself until time stands still.


Do carry on, you lonely soul, 

I motivate myself for reasons galore, 

No, I don't know will anyone support me, 

Hope is that this dream will at least convey me.


The strength I have but I am too reserved, 

Somewhere I know, you all I don't deserve, 

Hurt too many, with this habit have I lost? 

Every other second, how that question haunts.


Yes, I admit, I got so so weak, 

11 years of giving in, a melancholy streak, 

Moments, and people kept tearing me apart, 

Where could I have run, with my bleeding heart,

Deceive and pain, that even enemies don't need, 

Pushed me to find, a friend in this greed.


No words, no feelings can ever justify, 

Not a value of worth, are my aching cries, 

But I know one day, I will give you relief, 

All I want is your two drops of belief.


Now that I have poured, most of my heart out, 

Please carry on to love me, without any doubt, 

New first rays, of the rising sun, 

How I am seeing, at 4.51, 

I smile, I rejoice, I am just so revived, 

Thinking how the journey of compassion, has arrived.


For I can see the dewdrops melting like the kiss of a better tomorrow...

For I can see the dewdrops melting like the kiss of a better tomorrow...
