I have overdosed on you too many times
we were kidding ourselves
to think we could quit each other cold
a scar for every new fix,
hidden under new skins of others,
still burned in my memory
Your toxins have lingered in my veins
for more days then I can string together,
they never really left.
You are my highest highs and my lowest lows
the withdrawals of you have caused heart tremors
Some would call it beats.
I know better.
