I imbibed your words like an alcoholic to his 5th glass of whiskey
They were strong, yet I acquired a taste for it
It made me forget all my troubles; I felt loved, I felt wanted.
I craved you all the time, needing to get a fix
I had suddenly become more confident, walked with my head upright
I felt more beautiful
As I drank more & more of you, there was a lapse in judgement
Not realizing our tête-à-têtes was just a game to you, you meant nothing by it
They were only to gratify your selfish wants
My heart began to stagger & my body became immobile
I was left stupefied
And was forced to go cold turkey – I had to let go
Occasionally, I still crave bits & pieces of your colloquialisms
But who wants to go back to square one?
