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
