Addiction is a Bitch

Reds and blues and blues and blacks.
Lonely nights spent on my back.

I fuck to ease.
I fuck to erase.
   I fuck to release.
     I fuck to replace.

Cuts and scars and scars that bleed.
Just one hit can calm this need.

I smoke to ease.
 I smoke to erase.
   I smoke to release.
     I smoke to replace.

Fire and ice and ice and whiskey.
A few more sips, maybe he'll miss me.

I drink to ease.
 I drink to erase.
   I drink to release.
     I drink to replace.

Tears and words and words with meaning.
A healthy way to tame these feelings.

I write to ease.
 I write to erase.
   I write to release.
     I write to replace.
