Addicted


Addicted

Addiction has various forms
Dependant on something
Requiring above the norms

Things like alcohol you’d expect
Though it can be most anything
No surprise the cigarette

Are you thinking food or sex?
Yes they are also on the list
And it gets even more complex

An urge a need to have more
The unwavering want
That is what I tend to explore

The term applies to lots we knew
Drugs of course and even love
I know for I’m addicted to you

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
