The urge is overwhelming,
My body and mind wants it so bad
But the scars cannot be hidden
It is an addiction.

I can’t help that this awful thing makes me feel better
Or makes me numb to my feelings
But it does
It is an addiction.

It feels like they just drain away as I get it out of my special place
I try and try to ignore the urge
But it just keeps getting stronger
It is an addiction.

It makes me feel like I have purpose
And if I last through this pain
I can get through my emotional pain
It is my addiction.
