Love is an addiction

love could be like an addiction
it’s like being obsessed with you
sticking with you like a glue

love could be like a sin that spun
I know some bumpy rides ahead
of course, promises were misled

for sure, we’ve got a lot of fun
are we in or out, out or in?
argue, scream, bellow or grin

I always ask what I have done
and you just kept quiet then left
mutely crept in the night like theft

I’ve cried, you’ve made my heart broken
not just once, again and again
you’ve left me alone in the glen*

* The Constanza, created by Connie Marcum Wong, consists of five or more 3-line stanzas. Each line has a set meter of eight syllables. The first lines of all the stanzas can be read successively as an independent poem, with the rest of the poem weaved in to express a deeper meaning. The first lines convey a theme written in monorhyme, while the second and third lines of each stanza rhyme together.

Rhyme scheme: a/b/b, a/c/c, a/d/d, a/e/e, a/f/f………etc.

Written for November Notes hosted by two lovely and awesome writers, Rosema of A Reading Writer and Sarah of Heartstring Eulogies. Come, join the musical fun!😀
