Addiction Is A Cruel Mistress (Twisted Sister, Evil Twin)

Addiction Is a cruel mistress    
robbing you of your freedom    
and choice      
warping your desires      
turning you into a liar      
before you even notice      
she's thrown you into the fire      
      
Addiction is a twisted sister      
telling you the big lie      
everything's alright      
you aren't hurting anyone      
until she removes your loved ones      
from you one by one      
your job is next just like your home      
until you find you're all alone      
     
Addiction is an evil twin  
who tells you that you could  
walk away so easily but she's a tease      
satan's slut who takes you through      
hell's gates then slams them in your face      
She patiently awaits your fall     
laughing as she watches you crawl then hit the wall      
damn those demons straight to hell

My heart goes out to anyone struggling with addiction. It's hell. I know because I've dealt with my own demons. I have deep respect for the addicts and alcoholics who are in recovery. There are so many that haven't made it there yet. It's never too late to ask for help unless you're already dead.
