I love you like …


By Raelee Lancaster

… An addict loves coffee,
that deep-seeded need
that buries all rational emotion.

I breathe you
you’re part of my routine
part of my being
you run hot through my veins

I wake up
only to seek you out
only to feel the burn
of your lips branding my skin

I need you
like an addict needs rehab,
that knowing that are wrong for me
that knowing that I just can’t quit.
