Sweet Addiction by Sayofunmi (Asteriqq) Soyewo


Just a text for the road

Until it became food for my soul

Just friends till I’m bored

Now I don’t want to know our end

Just tonight for the company

But a day without you feels like agony

You’re more than a drug

And the reason I push past the fog

I’ve found in you a new addiction

Your absence would be my worst affliction

The more of you I have

more of myself I lose

Yet I still can’t have enough of you.

You’ve become all I crave

I guess I’m addicted.
