A.W. Nutter

Soul filling with darkness
Destroying the internal light
Love, peace and happiness
Forever lost in the night

Anxiety and trepidation
Fills every waking hour
Normality an aberration
Sanity being devoured

Family and friends disappear
Cravings, must be appeased
Satan whispering in the ear
The body becomes diseased

Lies and thievery come easy
Bowing to the masters trill
Creating an allusion of ecstasy
Swallowing the poisoned pill

Soul filling with darkness
Destroying the internal light
Love, peace and happiness
Forever lost in the night

    This is one vivid way to describe addiction. You have used very descriptive words and appropriate rhyming here.

    Its like snuffing out hopes and dreams for the next fix that truely has no fill. All else is but a shadow- formless, meaningless. Appreciate your comment.
