ADDICTION

No half measures
I like to go at full throttle,
inebriating the body, mind and spirit
emptying many a bottle.

Setting in with ease
friendly from the outset,
gripping the life as time goes by
biggest foe one ever met.

Immersed deeply in my trap
a vicious circle to come out from,
as enticing as it could be
left to hopelessly roam.

I burn down houses
reduce them to ashes,
spreading misery along the way
leading to household clashes.

Luring into my pit
intoxicating the soul,
not easy to escape from my clutches
as i sink you down a deep hole.

Foray into my world
at your own peril,
for you shall never be the same again
I'm that evil.
