Addict

Wanting, craving, lusting, needing
What? Something that makes me feel
Chasing the next high like a hamster on its wheel
Calm one minute, and the next panting

It’s a smoke, it’s a drink, it’s a fuck
Not that I’m trying to pass the buck
But
Chemical levels in my brain are way off
When I was assembled somebody was jerking off

I claim hedonism is where it’s at
Poor excuse for my lack of control
Let’s face it – because on the whole
I’m an addict, it’s as simple as that

    1. Thank you so much! I’m sorry in getting back to you so late but I get so many notifications and, once in a while, something slips through. However I just found this comment and I’m so pleased I did. Thanks again πŸ™‚

  1. Dr. Peters: Have you had any drugs in the last 24 hours?
    Bukowski: No. Well… I guess I snorted some coke and smoked some pot but uh, you know, that was just to make the ecstasy last longer.
    Dr. Peters: Sure you’re not forgetting anything?
    Bukowski: Maybe a few beers?
    Dr. Peters: Did you ever think you might have a substance abuse problem?
    Bukowski: The only substance problem I have right now is that I need you to get me some trank so I can come down off this fucking coke.
