You can’t run from it nor can it be hidden from, it is a prowler and a taunter and stealer of your strength. It will suck from you until all your goodness gone.
It lurks in corners and shadows and bides it’s time. It is vicious and evil, it sneaks up on you and springs out even when you feel fine.
Always there, ever present, waiting for your weakest moments , the darkest hour of your night, the time when you are all alone and all your resolutions have taken flight.
Seething with hate it will consume you so absolutely . You think it is gone, abated, been subdued but no it has just been licking it’s wounds from the last time that you beat it.
The worst is, you have to watch it as it crawls into the one you love and change them into a monster that will lie to you and steal from you cheat you to feed the monster. It is all they care about this monster, they will get lower and lower until they hit and the ground .
What happens when there is nowhere to go , crawling along the depths of despair.What if they turn all against them and no helping hands no is there. I cannot bare to watch that which came from me struggling against this evil monster trying so hard to be free!
Trying to be free from the hunger of monster that never stops , it is never sated it will suck you until you drop. Then all I can do is watch and my pain is a hundred fold for I am watching all this happening to the tiny baby I used to hold.
Though grown to a man this is still my baby and there is nothing to be done. God help the mother or father who has an addict for a daughter or a son.
