My Broken Heart

I binged on you.


For hours and hours,
my mind revolved around you.


I indulged in you.


I wanted you near
every moment of the day...


until I couldn't satisfy
my cravings for you anymore.


Infatuation turned
into addiction.


You were my drug,
and the supply was too low.


So I withdrew
until your memory faded.


I quit you cold turkey
knowing it would be a process.


But eventually,
I learned to live without you.


I realized I could go on
without a fix of you.
