ADDICTION

Just like drugs and alcohol

You pulled me in with a promise

to feel better.

You brought me into a world of feelings

Made me addicted 

I'm so hooked it's become mylife.

I do it in the world

Use words with twists and double meanings

composing my thoughts in secret

reiterrating the ideas

When I speak in a language few get

I am writing in hopes to understand

The feelings I have 

To deal with my anger and anxiety

Because therapy costs more than I can afford.

and the sound of the keys

tapping as my feelings escape

is better than any tune.

Because reading the work of others and myslef.

In a rhythmic matter makes me feel better

Poetry is to me what sunlight is to humans...

essential.
