Burned

If you play with fire, eventually you will be burned, yet sadly there are some it seems, who never learn

They keep one foot in the dark abyss, saying to themselves “I can handle this, it’s harmless” and it seems they really are convinced, lost in self delusion, confusion, heartbreaking as it is

This poem is about the dangers of addiction, the more you feed one the bigger it grows. Addiction is a devastating poison, if you are struggling with one, there is help, hope and healing, if you’re willing to seek it out.
