I’m certainly addicted




It has me in its grip

blinded by claims of fame

promising me what I need


and there’s no letting go

while I’m in pain, I believe

what I do is okay and



I’ll fill my needs with my

wish to please but I shouldn’t become

greedy with my craving for admiration


from girls.eager to satisfy

without saying please

I don’t need drugs to work


but hope everything I need

to fill my needs will come my way

and never let go


until I discover stupid and getting

 screwed go together

like a writer with dope


I suffer when my name appears

on the cover of a book and it brings

no fame no girls no money no acclaim


yet, I continue inscribing words and I know why

                   I’m addicted
