Addictions to Love
The most convincing lies are the ones whispered softly and delicately to the deepest depths of your own heart. They start just as simple, a seductive single line of possibility. A fleeting glimpse into an unknown and changing future.
And somehow the lies grow… until control and containment of them fades away to nothing. Until they wrap around your entire being and refuse to ever let go.
Can you ever be free of it?
There’s darkness in the distance separating dreams and reality. The countless times I’ve let go of you…and still you lie in the shadows of a memory.
And I tell myself one more moment, I’ll just lose myself for another time. No matter how long I stay, my heart can always leave.
But then again. Every time I leave, I come back the same way once more. You are the one disease to which my heart can find no true cure.
Letter to Reader,
