a dangerous addiction

I wanted you
I craved you
sleep escaped me
you consumed me
you were all I cared about
little else mattered
as long as I had you

you made me mad
you made me crazy
you made my heart race
then you started to affect my health

I drive by your house
my car wants to pull in
I manage to keep moving
the associations are killing me
I did so many things with you
I couldn’t make the break

Now I have beat you
I no longer need you
too much has happened
we’re broken up for good

you were like the love
of a crazy woman
a topic I know all too well
but you come from a bottle

your name is alcohol
and I’m leaving you
