A Life Without You

A Series Of Poems

A Poem By: Martina Garcia


There are many different types of addiction in this world

and unfortunately, unlike others my parents did not teach me with words that addiction is wrong

they taught me with actions

and unlike them I don’t crave something in my veins

I crave someone in my arms

they did not tell me I could be addicted to boys with curly hair and brown eyes

they also did not tell me the same way a drug can destroy you inside out a person can too.

I didn’t think I’d be addicted to you,

to the attention but I crave it
