An endless stream

Of emotions wash

Over my aching soul

Try as I might

I can’t put my finger on it

Is it love that I feel

Is it jealousy

Perhaps anger

Or just primal lust

That drives me to you

Time and again

I give you up

Like an alcoholic

Swearing off liquor

I am addicted

You are the drug

That feeds my soul

Keeps my heart pumping

I run to you obediently

Knowing the outcome

I will feel guilt and remorse

And wear a Scarlet letter

For the whole day

Maddening

You are insanity

And I have no escape

I doubt if I want one
