Thanks to MindLovesMisery’s Menagerie for hosting. This week’s prompt is the song: “Constant Craving” By KD Lang
Constant cravings not only for,
An addict or a pregnant gal.
Cravings that run deep, thus, inform–
Temptation in life, to resolve.
Find balm for cravings we adore,
The deadly; we’re not infallible.
What if they control us, and pour–
Salt on wounds, we’re delicate, fragile.
Some addictions, need be unformed,
Forget the drugs, the alcohol–
Constant craving beyond our core,
Craving affection, unappalled.
A deep urge, to have and to pour —
Water on our burns, all close calls.
But can you escape craving more?
Never enough, always need salves.
Constant want and feeling so sore —
Need completion, a place to fall.
Beyond bad cravings, wanting more.
Constantly seeking, peace enthralls.
