Addicted to the Magic

Addicted to the Magic

A Poem by Jaded rose

Inspired by the Lost Rose.



I am addicted to the magic of men
I enjoy them and love to watch them
Playing with them is, oh so much fun
My addiction to them has me on the verge of sin
Feelings have me confused
On one hand, I want one man in my life
But my fear is that real love does not exist
And because of this fear..will I be alone for the rest of my life
I am not a one night stand girl
I love the phone calls and text messages
The lunches and hugs I can get on demand
Am I addicted to the magic of men
One day I counted up the different men that are or were
At least those I could remember by name
I came close to seventy...sure there were more
Does this not say an addiction to the magic of men
There is one man that I am addicted to now
For no rhyme or reason our attraction is heady
Makes me want him all the time
Is this love or addiction of the magic of this man
A twentysomething guy who is just a sweetie
I have to remember his age
Because I really would like to play with him
Again, does this not say I am addicted to the magic of men
So, do I really want one man in my life
.... Or is it my fears
.... Or my addiction to the magic of men
Please pray that I find my way
I think my prayers are hitting the ceiling
Because I am so confused by...
The way I feel and my want ....
My adddiction to the magic of men

I must agree that it is an addiction. lol At least for me it is.I must agree that this was fun to read it looks like it was fun to write. Men are worse then chocolate sometimes.

Addiction? There are worse than men to be addicted to. This is a fine write, much fun to read!! I agree with Siddartha this poem would make a fine song.

Wow! wow. i'm so glad the lost rose referred me to this poem. i def feel your pain, and wonder in this poem 100%. i'm the same way, i have an addiction to the magic of men too. not all men, but a certain few, i get so attatched i almost puff them up to ten times their weight, and I can get a little, well obsessive, emarrassed to say. i'm like youo, i'll pray to meet the right man, but then i will still lust after the wrong men. just remember, you are not alone. thanks for sharing this great piece. stop by my profile, anytime.

Writing is my NEED to unclutter life. It eases my stress. Wish I had more time to write and read poetry. It touches my soul and clears the negativity at times. Thank you for sharing your work and .. more..
