Humble Addiction – Poetry

This is my humble addiction

Not real

Maybe to you

It’s not fun or fulfilling

This is my humbling addiction 

I stay by his side

No matter how much I know 

I should leave

I am still here

No matter what he’ll do

It’s humbling 

To become 

The girl I claimed

I’d never 


I am her,

Whose woes revolve around a boy

Who will never

Or could never

Appreciate her

But she stays

By his side

Loses her mind 

But she’ll stay 

By his side

I know he was sent here

To my level

To humble me 

I talk about my worth

Then give it away

To my humbling addiction

I say


Three times a day

As constant as a prayer

He is as distant as the horizon

As pretty as it too

Kind as a bully 

And I can’t say it

But I hate to love you
