Step One:
Identify the problem.
Admit to yourself
that you're just
trying to escape
the disgusting despondency
and silent despair
of empty sleeplessness.
Admit that you misused it...
because it made you stop feeling.
Somehow, for awhile, you forget.

Step Two:
Seek help.
but you remember the cries
and wordless pleas,
once again, you hear the
piercing screams
pain permeates your skin
tears fall against your will
and again you sink
desperately to
the unforgotten past
you're too weak to rise from.

you remember how you found help
how you achieved forgetting
how the scars seemed to fade
and you fall back in...

Step One:
Identify the problem.

"...yesterday is only a dream, tomorrow, but a vision..."

Just a question
I really like this poem. Are you trying to describe all addictions? Or do you have one certian addiction on mind?

thanks! i'm glad you liked it. anyway, id idn't really focus on any type of dependency (i wouldn't know enough about that to make it conviceable)... maybe just addiction to destroying once life or putting ones'self down...
