Battling Addiction

I have an addiction, one that I battle It’s not of drugs, alcohol, or even sex It’s one that I can surely say does rattle All my senses are quite annoyed and complex I deliver my thoughts completely through me And hone them in a spool of knowledge you see I keep my addiction active by thinking I write poems addictively creating
