I love you

like an addict

loves coffee

that deep-seeded need

burying all rational


I breathe you

you’re part of my routine

run hot through

my veins

I wake up

to seek you out

to feel the burn

of your lips


my skin

I need you

like an addict

needs rehab


you are wrong for me


I just can’t quit
