The Dealer

The Dealer

A Poem by Corset





We are all addicted to something

be it love,
poetry,
sex,
drugs,
gaming,
movies,
food,
nicotine,
sports,
fitness,
gambling,


a way of life
a way to escape

life,

is it presumptuous 

to think you are the only
addict in the world

or to think 
someone could never understand 
your suffering,

but there is one thing
an addict has in common...

they all form a special bond
with 

The Dealer.

Loved this crisp, fast paced free verse tackling an interesting phenomenon. My Dealer is Asda where I buy Toberone!

of course... knee wacking is seriously not funny ..and they did/do things like that :{
Insightful and wise poem. Some are even addicted to addiction. Whatever stimulates adrenaline or endorphin production...hopefully the dealer is kind..

Thank you Annette
I have to agree with emmajoy.
I think you left off alcohol,
but it can be classified as a drug.
Nice one, my friend.

' but there is one thing an addict has in common...;

That Dealer - however one sees him, it, her.. is the reason why.. everything.. ,,

Isn't LIFE itself an addiction? Don't we all need it, crave it, hang onto it.. long to wake to and wallow in it?!

Surely we all have need of that one vital everything.. being here.. able to .. ... .. BE

Wonderfully inspiring words, Corset, inspiring one to think.. decide, think again.. then yes, wallow in one's discovery. Happily

Oh how right you are. We are all the same but just with different interests. Some don't think things are an addiction if it is not drugs or alcohol. But we all have some form of addiction.
