Withdrawal



~~~

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

~~~

  1. I really enjoyed the poem for the truth of its content. I also saw a ‘rhyming’ pattern that makes me wonder if this is a schematic you’ve done before?

  2. Brilliantly written, quite a true and powerful message, lovely work Brad!

    Sad but true. You say it well, Brad. Too good , too skilled with your words. That’s your power. You write it effortlessly.

    clever; it’s a shame when peope play games with the power of love…

    It’s a dangerous and slippery slope when people manipulate one another by withholding love.
