Inert Love #poetry #addiction


line of pills

Lustful I think of you

crystal twinkle in my eyes

captivated by the smile you put on my face

nothing for you I wouldn’t do


cannot shake you from my thoughts

you in my every mention

impatiently wait in line

your love have I sought


mistress of my nights

lover of my days

nervous I anticipate

without you there’s  cloudy haze


I lay wrapped within the seams

a bottle in my arms

you  have addictive charm

inert you never dream


How easy is it for us to become addicted?

How hard to be unencumbered?

  1. Never quite been all the way there, but have been very close… And I know that my mother wouldn’t last without her medication – but don’t know if that is from the actual pain for which she is taking the medication for or from addiction. *sigh* It’s a tricky subject how to control the release from pain without letting the release control you. Beautifully written!
