The former addict.
My addiction started young,
too young to stop myself from falling.
the first hit I had was confusing but left me wanting more.
The first high was consumed in spring of 2007 which took me straight to heaven.
Sooner than later I repeatedly craved this feeling,
to constantly feel higher than the ceiling.
days turned to weeks and weeks turned to months
but my addiction had begun from day one.
the tingling sensation and the heart palpitations confirmed the drug was working,
when taken away from the drug my mind was left yearning,
craving a quick fix or was it your smile or a cheeky kiss?
When speaking of love this is my greatest addiction.
To cure the wrong love, I needed a new prescription.
