Addiction Revisited

21 Mar

His favourite girl by Jack Vettriano



The uncaring night will take me

And oppress me with its heat.

Leave me wide-eyed and sleepless

In a tangle of tortured sheets.


Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.


The over bright dawn will find me

And burden me with its hope.

Leave me confused and restless

Tied up tightly in my own rope.


Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.


The relentless day will trap me

And unsight me with its glare.

Leave me wandering and helpless

Your distance has stripped me bare.


Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.

I make no excuses for posting this again.  It is one of my favourite D/s poems.  I wrote it for Jenny at the beginning of what turned out to be a long and mainly exquisite affair.  I am cured of that addiction, but am still susceptible to others.

    This spoke to my current heart condition. It’s like you were inside my head reading my thoughts. You eloquently expressed what I have not dared to utter aloud. Thank you 🙂

    Love is an addiction. Its a stimulant that has the extraordinary effect that the more you do it, the more you want it. I’m addicted… to RD’s writing. xo

    Another post from exactly one year ago today.
    This addiction has given me such extraordinary highs – and some chilling lows – but I will never give up this drug,

    Love the look-back, the inclusion of the analyses of your state of mind then and a (short) year later.
