Craving, Slaving

You snared me
and held me in addiction
making me
to your need.

You always await
striking right
the moment I intent
like a parasite
feeding on
on me.

You come
with your
tenacious tentacles
clinging on
asking for more
of which
I am a victim
to your mercy.

Camouflage you do
difficult to detect
difficult to know
a driving force
in all my desire.

Until I recognize you
suffering is inevitable
a slow death
repeating one more time
again and again
never ending.

yet death doesn’t help
for even this
you are around
in invisible cloak
at the other end.

Wisdom not at sight
or determination to know
you better
you are constantly
my shadow
feeding on.
