I love you

like an addict

loves coffee

that deep-seeded need

burying all rational

emotion

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

branding

my skin

I need you

like an addict

needs rehab

knowing

you are wrong for me

knowing

I just can’t quit
