“No one told me you can love someone and still be miserable. How is that possible?”
― Krista Ritchie, Addicted to You


You are an addiction
a hard habit to break
I’m trying to get over to you
I’m trying so hard
But everything
every effort goes in vain
when those shiny sapphire eyes
gaze at me

You are an addiction
an abomination
you are bad enough to me
an obsession
am trying to get over to you
but always falls for that
devilish smile
every time you look at me

You are an addiction
I’m fixated on you
like a shiny trinket
a prize to be won
I gravitate towards you
as my whole being
is orbiting around you

You are an addiction
my inclination towards
your bad behavior makes me
want you even more
you are a bad influence
to me

You are an addiction
my predilection for something
always intrigues me
your enticing passion laced words
makes me
want to commit
that cardinal sin forever

Oh ! you are an addiction to me.
I want to get over you, baby.

  1. I would probably have a long essay in reply to you query, but suffice to say, it is possible because we don’t love ourselves enough. but your poem has a playful side to it too so I am thinking it’s not “angsty” as I feel! love the levels of addiction you write on Megha, the nuances of feelings that saturate after each stanza, very good!

    1. Thanks Gina..You got it so well, it is indeed written on a playful note. More so on the lines of first crush or infatuation.That’s why it has all the fun gigly things a heart feels when it is obssessed with someone.Glad you like ti.Your comments make my day.

      1. I really enjoy your writing, you have a lovely repertoire! I did like it very much. Made this cynical woman smile a little as I read it. Yes I got the giggly fun, it was infectious.

  2. Oooh My, You reached down and unlocked some rogue memories I had locked up!! Now I’m going to have to chase them down again!! You had a powerful and moving capture of what it’s like to be addicted!!! Seems that happens easily for me! Luckily, I’m now addicted to an Angel and it doesn’t feel like an addiction although I know it is because I get nightmares about withdrawals!!!
    Bravo, My Dear, Bravo!
