Love can become an affliction

If the wanting an addiction

And a heart will feel the tug

When denied the fixing drug


Just like a street-corner thug

You give samples out with hugs

The pleasures come for free

As hooked they soon will be


Blinded by your reverie

They will now pay any fee

Their lives they happy pay

To survive another day


But the evil that you play

When you take your drug away

May cause the conviction

To beat your addiction

    love is the most powerful drug of all. And as such it needs to be used with great care.

    Wow this is a powerful piece my friend. You know I suppose we all have known people who have been hurt by someone’s games or dishonesty. I use to know a beautiful girl when I was in my early 20’s and we were friends but I didn’t like the way she was with men. She would get dates for both Friday and Saturday nights and then she would think about which one sounded the best and call one and cancelled. I couldn’t believe she did this and I comforted her about it. Our friendship ended abruptly because I couldn’t handle knowing the hearts she was breaking.
    Great piece Brad hopefully not written from personal experience. Sending you lots of love and hugs. Jonikins

    It’s an addiction that we’ve all gone through and we’ll all continue to flirt with no doubt. Great topic and a fab piece. Smashing work I say!
