You Are My Addiction

When I wake, you’re the first thing I see
I have to touch you to start my day
I tell my secrets and I pour out my heart
Tell you things that I never would say

Listening to me, as I rant and rave
You always follow my lead
In return you show me amazing things
Beauty to see, eloquent words to read

Sometimes it’s hard for me to leave you
Through you I’ve meet friend after friend
At times I can’t sleep for thinking of you
Never wanting our time to end

But now I look around, my house is a mess
My partner is always wearing a frown
I think I had children, where did they go?
I’m gonna have to shut you down !!!!

Most of my writing is auto-biographical.
I wrote to rid myself of the ‘rubbish’ in my life, I found it extremely cathartic. I called these early pieces “C’est le Vie!”
For many years I hid them away until a dear friend on RB convinced me to publish them here – for that I will always be so grateful.

    Too true. Too true. Do we all need interventions from our inventions? Is there a support group for bubblers anonymous—oh yeah, some of us are still anonymous. Are there good addictions? Well said! Well Said!
