Say goodbye
my seductive friend
Many hours lonely together
This is the end

I can endure you no more
You are too

Say goodbye
my addictive friend
Been good to know ya'?
Think again

YES!!!!!!! YES!!!! YES!!!!!
I don't know if you meant this piece the way I interpreted it but here's my take...

ADDICTION!!!! I've experienced an addiction to someone who was "too good to be true!" and proved themselves to be just that! My "addiction" led to many sleepless nights, agony and suffering when trying to come to grips with reality. It's a terrible thing to want to believe in someone so much.

Yet if I am wrong in my least I got something out of this educational piece, right?

Tammi: I suppose one may be addicted to a person as well as a substance. I need my wife like I need food. I had in mind substance addiction, as I am an exremist in many ways. If a little is good, more is better. In my case my lover on the side was alcohol, competing with my wife for affection vs. affliction.

I've been asked, "Drinking fucks you up. Why do you continue?"

Answer #0: Fuck you!

Answer #1: It pleases me. (to a point, then a downward spiral.)

Answer #2: I'm a fucking alcoholic. Alcohol has- wait, let me rephrase..

I'm an addict. My drug of choice was alcohol, yet I continued.

I have seen people, usually women, ADDICTED to a man. They endure abuse in exchange for validation both false and erratic. Addiction does not require drugs.

So, you were right!

I was wrong.

Sobriety is a process, not an event.
So is relapse.

You are a worthy person, above this crap.
Perhaps you accepted abuse because you felt you deserved it. NOBODY DESERVES ABUSE!

The past is past. We can't undo it, we shouldn't relive it, we damn well not repeat it.

You are made of good God stuff. Atoms of galaxies distant coarse through your veins. You are Woman-ROAR! Never let a man make you feel small.

You are as large as the Universe itself.

If any man says elsewise, I'll rip him a new one (like he needs it, he is one!)

With love and kindness,
