Addiction

The wanting is restless
Toes tapping, fingers rapping
Against the hard table surface.

The need stands
Body pacing, arms waving
Driving away the addiction.

The desire pours
Every pore, every breath
Expelling its sweetness.

The craving remains
Lurking inside, behind the mind
Willpower pushing it back.

Nice imagery and flow
Excellent piece! I especially like the terse, staccato tone you have used here. It adds to the great imagery. Blessings-TGR (Theresa)
