Addicted Voice

I originally wrote this poem in 2019. Long before I quit drinking.

Can you hear?
That voice
mere hiss in your ear
on the edge of awareness
‘come to me baby
come to my heart
I have you little girl
will never ever 
let you fall.
overriding thoughts
hold me close
steady chant
ease the ache
ease the pain
take as much as you can.
My blood is sluggish
my thoughts impaired
heart races 
triple time
so sure 
that I am dead.
stall a beat
breath catches in my throat
shall I die
shall I cry
who will understand?
That sensation
muffled cotton
oh my god
I am so content.
This is what it does
beast that calms the urge
wrap me in velvet
take me from here.
Eyes flutter shut
carried away
white innocence
pain is no more.

    1. Thank you so much. Quitting was a long process for me but eventually I did so. But addiction is not just alcohol or drugs and I wanted to portray the feelings of uselessness the fight and inevitable taking up of the addiction again. How the voice is so seductive in your ear teasing your with just one is okay you can handle it. That voice is the destruct button and needs to be eradicated. It is not easy at all for the majority of people it is a constant struggle to remain ahead of that voice.
