A Sickness Deeply Rooted

A Sickness Deeply Rooted

A Poem by CL

Its Raw, it's honest, and i hope its relatable.


I only want you,

when your interest is lacking-

I know its more than screwed up;

subliminally I'm cracking.

A need to have you;

wrapped around my finger,

I try to keep it at bay ,

but it lay awake to linger,

sometimes unknowingly,

a sickness deeply rooted,

you immersed yourself willingly.

In doubtful need;

a sense of security,


a high level of maturity,

Upon the eyes of others-

a pillar of strength: impenetrable.

Upon standard of virtue-

I find myself: Inexplicable
