My Addiction

We all have an evil side to us,
The vice that keeps its grip on our hearts.
Sometimes I feel like the more I fight it,
The harder it is to resist...
My Addiction.
The dirty little thing,
I try so hard not to give in to.
The secret siren,
That calls to my heart.
It feels so good to give in to it.
But like an unruly lover,
It leaves me feeling...remorseful.

What is it about us humans?
Why can't we control ourselves?
My lovely addiction, is also my tormentor.
I... keep... saying... "no"...
Even though I desperately want to say "YES!"
The desire alone persecutes me to no end.
It mocks my resolve.
It reminds me of my humanity.
