It's really like a drug, and I'm 
hopelessly addicted. There is 
no rehab for this because 
everyone says it's natural. How 
is it natural to feel amazing 
one minute, and then the very 
next to feel like complete 
garbage. It's not right or fair 
but I don't know how to make 
it stop. It's got me up at all 
hours of the day and night, 
saying anything I have to say, 
going anywhere I have to go; 
just for that brief moment of 
inspiration and vitality before I 
plunge back into the depths. 
How is it possible to do this to 
a human being? What does 
that make her? What does that 
make me?  It's a drug and I'm 
the addict, and right now I'm 
burned out.

    That's what happens when we get our first taste of what love might be like...we can't get enough.
