My Addiction

You are my addiction,
so sweet and tempting,
like the aroma of my favorite meal,
that I cannot resist, or taste.

My path to self-destruction.
Like an alcoholic doomed to die,
yet, he continues on drinking,
knowing that it’s death in itself.

My very personal alluring hell,
that I cannot stop, but to burn in.
Knowing that I’ll be devastated.
Knowing that it’s hell,
however pleasant.

My sweetest nightmare,
that I dread,
yet marvel at.
That I cannot stop hoping to see,
Day after day…

With an increasing passion, that burns me.
Inside and out…

My own drug that kills me.
Oh! So sweetly,
silently,
devastatingly.

But intoxicates me into oblivion,
nonetheless,
relieving me of the pain,
though temporarily.
Ensuring that I do not part with it.

I Am Your Addict.
And you are,
My addiction.

F.K. Jadoon is a girl who likes to dream and her dream is to become a recognised writer someday. She has recently done her Honours in English Literature. She’s an avid reader of literature and is most likely to be found with her nose in one book or another or just writing away in her little diary which is always kept close to her heart. In a society where creative writing is mostly not considered a serious enough field, she has battled her way through a fair amount of grumbling, disappointment and being taken lightly. And yet, she has never let her inner fire die as she keeps on pouring the gasoline of passion and determination on the dying embers of her inner voice. She has succeeded so far and hopes to do so in future.
