Subject: This is not about infidelity (per se)
Drunk with desire
I longed for you

As I had once lusted after him

A bittersweet game of wanting that
What is not within arm's reach

Discontent with what is.
A what is which used to be what isn't.

It is a vicious cycle of discontent

Soaked with innate curiosity, dissatisfaction
Perhaps greed, infinitely wanting more

Fuelled yet resisting a fire
Seductive and mysterious
Subtly screaming with promises
Promises that are half full
Half empty

I edged away from you
Reaching out
Torn but in place

Knowing
Tolerating
Controlling
Allowing myself to be taken away

Bitter
Grateful

All mixed into in inexplicable feeling of calm
A numbness that desperately wanted to explode.

I braced myself
Resisted you with considerable effort
Resigned

Once again
As I always do
I hid myself behind a mask
of nonchalance.

an eloquent (and painfully familiar) description of addiction, in its many facets. an impossible love for that which destroys us...

awesome clap
