About the Poem

This work is about new love - when the passion is just beginning, and the levels of intensity are almost overbearing. If you have ever felt a powerful force such as this before, you can probably relate to my words.

Addicted To You

I wake, work, eat, sleep, and dream you.
This emotional journey before us -
almost too much to bear sometimes.
Yet, every time I hear the ringing of the phone,
or see your name pop up online,
I know that I am addicted to you.
But it is far more than that,
and please listen very closely.
I am a very reasonable and sane person,
not given to idle whims or fancies,
not taken in any more by false hopes and promises.
Yet, somehow, you are different - very different.
I don't know what happened, or how or why,
but I feel as though I fell out of a cloud,
tumbling down to earth to a sure death -
and at the last possible second,
you caught me in your arms.
Yes, I am addicted to you,
but I know the consequences of addictions,
and, fear not, I will not harm you
or cause you pain in any way.
Of that, I give you my humble word.
I want to breathe you, to feel you,
to taste you, and to hear your soft whispers
against the sensitive nape of my neck -
telling me that you're addicted, too.

Sad thing is this poem discribes my relationship perfetly well my bf soon to be fiancee said I was addicted to him and I am what can I say I need his love like I need crack but without all those nasty effects hhaha
OMG. this poem is exactly perfect for my situation. I have met someone on line and we have never met, but this is the way we have both described our feelings. Wonderful Job.
Susan, your poem is spot-on and hits me square in the heart. My lover, your namesake, is moving to another city (Las Begas) to get away from some bad history. I am that man in your poem now. It breaks my heart - and you captured it from another angle. Thank you.

I enjoyed your poem Susan. I was looking for a poem which symbolized my own situation.....unrequited love for a man who doesn't even know me but whom I have written dozens of stories about and with each one my love grew stronger. He has become the epitomy of MAN.
just really hits home for me right now.I appreciate it being put into words.Thank you.
