Dear Addiction

I’m writing this to you,
Telling you we’re through.
I can’t take you anymore,
Don’t know what I liked you for,
All you did was wear me out,
Now I know what you’re all about.

You came to me with promise and joy,
Now look at all the things you destroy.
Families, lives, bank accounts you see,
You ruined it all with one little tease.
Look at the way you make me feel,
Then you take it all and want me to steal.

Why can’t you just go and hide,
Somewhere far away where I’ll never find.
Everyone at home doesn’t understand,
How you rip me apart, then lend me a hand.
I keep coming back thinking inside,
Maybe this time I’ll make you my bride.

Then I sit and wonder why,
Why do you really want me to die.
Thousands and thousands come to you,
Hoping and praying you’ll help them through.
Then they fall for your lending hand,
Only to realize you’re nothing but a scam.

You promised me heaven and sent me to hell,
You ruined my life and then wished me well,
Watch me now as I go on my way,
I’m washing myself of all of your pain.
So you and your power can just leave me be,
I’m taking my life and setting it free.
