Written November 2016

 I used to think that addiction
Was reserved for alcoholics
Workaholics
Crack whores.
Yet I have written strands of words
Pulled out like splinters from my own frontal lobe
And I have been sustained
Purely on fleeting inspiration
And bled veins dry
Just to coexist with suffering
Long enough
To evict a delicate aesthetic tailored to readers
Demanding existence.
And I have rehabilitated myself
Through stretches of empty nothings
Where all that I had
Perhaps all that I was
Has been carved from me
And offered up to an audience
Too caught up in my lack of rhyme
To encompass an attempt at macabre artistry  
We poets-
are illuminated with a desire to pull young minds
And plant them in our own skulls
Yet never really learn how to grow

And I could say that I missed being sober
But perhaps it was just easier
When my mind was simple, my vocabulary small
And my critical thinking
unenlightened
2nd Draft, thoughts?

Hey! I've been meaning to read more of your poetry, I really like what i've read so far from you : -) i just wanted to let you know there's a small mistype in here. "macarbe" is supposed to be "macabre". I hope you don't mind the correction, i figured you just may not have noticed it
