My Personal Heroin


I have this addiction

That I can’t contain

When I consume it

It pulsates in my veins

It is wrong for me

In every which way

But somehow I want it

Each and every day

It’s my personal choice

This drug I’m addicted to

My personal brand of heroin

My sweetest taboo

The hunger is growing

I can’t control it no more

My appetite of need

I need my next score

The craving so intense

I feel it growing stronger

Controlling my visual sense

I am growing weaker

Everytime it is present

It becomes my mind speaker.....

I like the parallel suggestion here that we all might just have our own "personal" heroin of sorts in our lives...of some it might be love...less dangerous but oh so addictive still. WB

Hi Bella,

Very powerful poem. I love the title. Reminds me of my article on Love Addiction. You are very in tune with your feelings through your writing which is awesome. Just make sure you take care of you first. "Relationships" can be an addiction too. Nice work!

This is really great bellawritter. I saw them all saw the needle that thing with spoke fear to deepest corridors of my mind years ago. Was then greeted with this beautiful surprise.And that heart shaped potion, awesome.

Now I have definitely gone forward.
