“When you can stop you don’t want to, and when you want to stop, you can’t…”
– Luke Davies, Candy
“What about today, you ask? Today it’s already too late. He’ll be home soon, and I have dinner on the stove, and wine chilling in the fridge. And he will smile at me when he comes through the door, and I will pretend like this fragile, dangerous thing we have created between us can last forever.
Just one last time, Sweets. Just one last fix. That’s all I need.
And that is why I now understand addiction.” – ― Marie Sexton, Strawberries for Dessert
Now love is to suffer at addictions hand,
This fight that happens I can’t understand.
I wish it were you that love had freed.
But addiction won, it a sturdy steed
Forcing itself on loves soft breast
Love itself would lose the test.
So take your leave I know you will
If you need help with addiction GET IT.
