Hollow Cravings

I detest my weakness
how much I need you
how much I miss you
how often I think about you

you’re like a drug to my brain
every little taste I get
buoys me higher for a little while

until I float back down and
settle my feet on reality again and
keep walking until

life starts pulling me down
bit by bit
and my walking becomes crawling
then I get another taste of you and

I’m flying again
for a few short minutes
before settling down once more

and now you’re gone away
here I am addicted
with no cure
it’s pathetic I know
and yet still

I crave you and
despise myself for it
all the same
