addictions........admissions of such.......


what are addictions?

what defines an 'addictive' personality?

is an addict a 'pleasure seeker'??

is he looking for thrills.......addicted to the adrenalyn rush?
addicted to the 'fall from grace'??


is it wrong to be a thrill seeker?

whats so frightening about being addicted to pleasure??

so what if it numbs the pain??


or is a true 'addict' a person who can only sustain his highs, based

solely upon his lows???

so that the 'addiction' then becomes a sort of rollercoaster ride.....

"see how high i can go!!!"


"and now look at me.........DOWN HERE......"


"I WILL NEVER BE IN THE SAME PLACE FOR LONG"


THERE IT IS......


thats what defines an addict.........

not here........not there........

manic.....
HIGHS........LOWS........
somehow akin to a 'commitment-phobe'......
(commitment-tobe!)
never really settling anywhere.........
searching for the ecstatic bliss.........missing out on the mundane delights.........
thinking them mundane.......
ordinary.......
everyday delights........trivialities........
chocolate kisses.....
windex.........
dental floss......
ahoy, mate!!
you might be missing the boat, brother!!!!......
its leaving the dock.........
a veritable cargo ship, piled high with abundant offerings........
peppermints.........baby powder...........
ASAIL TO FIGI...........
why did you let them go, oh you crazy, drunken sailor????
you couldve had it all!!!
the floss.......the mints........the sea-sickness........
but instead you chose NOTHINGness......NOWHEREness......
youve outsmarted yourself with your sojournings.........
ended up in a tent on the side of a dirt road.......
no shoes.......no sweater.......no umbrella.......
just insurmountable bags filled with benedryl and tissue paper.......
impressive...........very impressive..........
