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

~~~
