Her euphoria is his addiction;

making her happy is his habit.

He would do anything

to take away her pain,

but it flows through her veins.

He can’t save her

from the effects of

her self-induced disease.

The rush of this crush

soon fades away

and depression sets in.

Despite the injections,

rejection has become

her drug of choice.

Although sedated,

she feels hated

and paranoid.

She depends on him for this fix,

but only she can save herself.
