POEM| I Fought The Addiction

You were my drug
a drug I thought I could never let go of
You were my escape
when I wanted a break from reality
You knew the real me
behind the facade I showed the rest of the world
You gave me a quick fix
as often and as long as I needed it
Though I knew you were bad for me
and could never love me
I didn’t care because you cured me
And whenever I thought I was done
I always found my way back
One last time I’d say
but there were too many last times
No matter how long it had been
you always welcomed me back
and made me whole again
but somehow I became wise
I found the strength to break away
I fought the weakness 
I fought the addiction
I stopped needing you
and threw you in the trash
