A relationship like cocaine
by Kathryn Hayes
Intense highs, peaking briefly
And then the dipping, suffocating lows.
A constant craving for a sniff, a bump, and brush of your skin against mine.
I’d beg my friends just tell me where you are.
I was finally intervened,
Everyone said I couldn’t live my life this way.
Constantly craving, endlessly searching, begging, all for you.
But it never sank in.
My fiending continued,
My loving spiraled,
But my connection had run dry.
Cocaine stays in your body for three days
But you’ve been poisoning my system a bit longer.
