Addiction

Written by: Joseph Granda-Padron

You held me motionless
Suspended & nothing
w/ your promises
Of tomorrow
& pleasure
Forgetfulness
& whom amongst us
doesn’t desire
Forgetfulness…

Scratching away
My reality.
Burning
Up my past along
Side
My future.

I stood there
A fallen angel
A bewildered god
Gifted w/ hope
& courage
But no more…
	NO MORE!

Today
Frozen
Belittled by my dreams
Torn to shreds
By thirst
& memories

YOU beast!

If only the stars
Were as certain…
There’d
Be no use
For light.
