Junkie Love

She loved me when I was wretched

her acceptance raised me to my feet

but once I stood, she faced me down:

an Angel of Self-Destruction

with poison pumping through my veins

and my emotions dead or dying

She helped me clip those wings

though I know that they’ll grow back

but for now I rejoice to feel all my pain

and shed tears of boundless joy

you’ve given me back my life,

my love,

and for that I’m ever-grateful
