Addicted to You

He fills me with passion and energy But fear slips between the cracks He's the anchor to my ship Or weight pulling me down Mr. Charming and angelic Until jealously overtakes Too late Captured They tell me I should leave this place Flee the life of walking on eggshells But he knows just what to say To make me go back I always come back I can't leave I'm his Guilty. I treasure moments of peace alone Scared, yet enticed to stay I can change him He'll get better More time Excuses. Years have gone by Same old game Bruises, scars Hopeless. Imprisoning my mind Blaming myself Defeated But in the end He makes me feel And that's all I deserve

I love how the verses become smaller, as does the resistance. The closing line is excellent. Good writing!
