Addiction

Aabha Misra

Addiction fails infront of her eyes,
Breakup - the story of my demise,

Alcohol not addicting as her talks,
I miss peaceful shadow of her locks,

No hallucination soothes like her voice,
For her truths I gifted her lies,

Ciggarette doesn't suffocate,
But the guilt of realising her worth late,

Gave me hopes and dreams,
Even in return of tearful nights and screams,

With me in situations good or bad,
But I was an immature lad,

I told her lets end it all,
No stupid messages and irritating calls,

For hurting my innocent girl,
Let drugs destroy life revolving around her.
