The flesh forgets
As the blood forgives
The persuasive needle
Piercing the arm…


Liquid fire, liquid ice,
Seeps through the eye,
Seeking a pathway
To the brain…

…to the heart…

Loving you isn’t easy,
And thus I take you
In again…


I feel the pleasure
And block the pain,
While you pierce my heart



One Response to “Addicted”

  1. This poem was written during my college days in the 1980s. I guess it was self-reflection on continuing a relationship that I knew wasn’t good for me. Why do young women do that to themselves, stay in relationships that they know aren’t right?
