About the Blog

Thoughts off the cuff about life and it's wonders
Introspective fluff meant to recount the blunders
Take it at face, If you must take it all
For it speaks to us both, Who feign standing tall

Escaping addiction...

I have a problem
Actually, I have several 
Gambling and

These are my addictions 
That whisk me away from reality
If only for a moment
That I stretch into days at a time

It seems that every time
Responsibility beckons
I find an excuse 
To embrace my addictions
Trying to escape
My human existence 

But when I come down from my high
And find my way back to reality 
Nothing has changed 
My duties are still waiting 
For my attention 

I find myself scared
And a mess 
Unsure where to start 
As my cool loses out to stress 

I turn back to my addictions
Thinking one last rush 
Before I attend to my chores
Would do me good 
And calm my nerves

But one becomes two
Which becomes infinitely more 
And the next thing I know 
I'm back to the drawing board
Except each time I come down 
I think, "Shit man, great"
With sarcastic undertones 
As I spy the pile's grown on my plate

My escapes from reality, I realize 
Do nothing more than delay the inevitable
But leave me more stressed than before
And yet each time I understand this 
I reach for my addictions once more

Bewildered yet lacking control 
I'm a slave to escapism 
And recovering on the bathroom floor
