Poem: Addiction


Dangerously drinking up your darkness

Daring to lose myself in an abyss

I want to hurt to prove I’m alive

And through hate know you better


Course through my veins

Scream through my system

Consume my soul

Make me less human

Rage me open

Until my heart gives in

Written 8th December 2004, this was a reflective piece of how I used to think and feel during a time in my life that was reasonably recently done with when this was written. It has such a powerful words and images and really sucker punches them over. I quite love the angry dark in this and how it captures how I was thinking and feeling at an unhappy point in my late teens.

Make of it what you will 🙂
