Dear Addiction

Dear Addiction, You've always been a companion. You were the shadow that walked with me. I kept moving on, even though I didn't know that I was being... followed I found myself trying to find my priorities, from my conglomerated responsibilities and now, not only do I regret, A heart filled with contempt, I contemplate in the valley of reality Like a freely falling body Under the lone influence of gravity. The more I moved towards your edge The more you showed me your depth This time, I tried to back out, but under that strong field, I was blacked out. I saw what I couldn't see and you showed me what I could never be I thought it was 'hope' but as an impostor of hope, it was desperation in disguise and 'depression' in my life Dear Addiction, We've been together for far too long, I'm sorry to say this, It wont work anymore Let our memories be set ablaze As we take this moment to part ways. I know you'll find your way, 'cos your next residence...is not far away

This problem I know all too well, at least the next residence... because my partner fights addiction (is doing well). Very well expressed and worded.
