Junkie for love

I believe in love like a junkie believe in drugs
I take a hit of passion then compassion fills my lungs
Injections of affection and I.V.s of blessins
So high i'll paint pink the dept. of corrections
My heart then pumps understanding I become less demanding
I sweat out pain and regret and develop respect
And throughout this scenario I let jealousy go,
then trust began to flow,anger lost its hold,
self confidence rose,my mind then clicked on reload,
negative was disposed,eyes shed tears of control,
cause my system was whole,
now leroy cant mess with me and my glow

    Hullo Shantez. I didn't smurfing recognize your name in the comment you left. Welcome to PoetrySoup! Enjoyed reading the smooth flow of your love-junkie glow - a lot of truth in the middle section about letting jealousy go....jealousy is colder than the grave.
