Codependency/Addiction Poem

(A dedication to all of the wonderful people in the SR Forum from me to you and please feel free to share...blessings)

You tell your story
Mine sounds the same
I am not alone
In this endless game

I feel locked up
I have crossed the line
Where I cannot decipher
What's yours and what's mine

Where I used to love
I have turned numb
Without them
What will we become

At first I am weak
Suffering pain unreal
Playing hide and seek
In dreams surreal

My fear is strong
When I give it life
To my drug
I have become it's wife

If I let go
What do I gain
So I've held on
To what remains

A thread of hope
I must find in me
Love myself
And set you free

Because I love you
I will do my best
To go deep inside
And leave the rest

Because I love me
I can give
Without losing
My will to live

This life that is yours
It's human and wild
Never forget
You are but an innocent child

I reach out
In my darkest hour
I wake up
And take back my power

The mind is troubled
The body is shaken
The soul is pure
The spirit awakens

I will not wait
For my happy ending
I have a heart
That is worth mending

Thank you for all of your positive feedback. Writing is one of my favorite forms of expression and connection. I love to share creativity with others and especially here where we are all in need of ways to release. More soon...
