Regaining My Gift

You took my gift

to feed your habit

If only in solitude

 I wish it was given
Addiction too strong

your blinded by it's wrong.

So I stay hollow, gift less

and palms full of empty.

Heavy is your load

you carry your purchase

a transaction you stole to make

From... my pockets, my purse, my mind

no peace

Your sticky fingers constantly rob me.

I am left nothing

Questions cloud the room

in it I hide

Up and down this roller coaster

"please let me off this ride".

Dark, gloomy, sad

walls of bricks

Inside are no treats

Inside only tricks

I close my eyes

I began to pray

Grown up I am free

to right the wrong of previous day.

Addictions stop

here my gifts over flow

now the habit, bad habit
