You were my drug…

you were my drug

the one I was bare without

the one I couldn’t stop craving

and even though I knew

you were drowning me

I held on to like

a ship does for anchor

you were my drug

the one I couldn’t live without

the one couldn’t breathe without

and even though

you were killing me

I needed you more than my next breath

I didn’t know what to do

when I couldn’t find you

neither beyond the stars

nor under the sea

and I’d dig a well

five hundred feet beneath

if I could have my fill

a fill for a lifetime

a fill of you

because

you were my drug

the one I couldn’t live without
