Deprived of Love

Personal (Hope)

Addictions start with people
trying to escape their realities.


My life isn't everything
that I'd hoped it would be.


It gets terribly lonely
since I have few to call friends.


So I obsess over people,
letting them consume my mind.


I have been deprived of love
for most of my short life.


Now that I've possessed it,
I crave it like a thirsty soul.


I have a codependent streak
and you're next on my list.


I worry I'll drive you away
and be left alone again.


But this time it's different,
you're unlike all the rest.


This could be something special
that could last forever.
