People desire
what destroys them.

It’s all the dopamine
in our brains.
It triggers
insatiable cravings
for that high
that love provides.

We know better,
don’t we?

We know the drug
will only lead
to needing more,
and what happens
when it’s gone?


Crawling skin
and hot flashes,
that burning ache
in your chest.
Stomach pains
and restlessness.

And your thoughts
go nowhere else.

You are trapped
by your own desires
even though you know
each moment,
every dose,
destroys you
just a little more.
