Tempted by an old addiction
A friend went over the top
Falling into his old routine
Now he’s unable to stop
Triggering deep seated issues
Feelings from so long ago
Getting high rather than crying
Going with the flow
What caused this aberration?
Bringing back the black hole
Stampeding over emotions
Smoke floating over the bowl
The blank in life surrounding
Only memories from the past
Keep coming to the forefront
Torturing tears of the harassed

That’s rough when people keep falling into the same destructive habits. I feel very sorry for them. A great write on a painful part of some people’s lives.
If there is one good result it’s being so close to home that it quells the inner conflict.
Some have it some don’t. It’ll work itself off to something good in most instances! Great verse!
Thanks Hank for the comment and the visit.
