I've become addicted to words

One after another

They form their bond

And leave me speechless in their wake

I play God

With words so powerful

Like a field of bloodied soldiers

They take their place for battle

Knowing me, one word and

All its meaning taken away

In the blink of an eye

A word can die

And leave remnants on your heart

I am addicted to words

Addicted to reeling you in

The tragedies of my own mind

A battle my whole soul is in
