Sleep

To bed for me I sing in glee, good night

Slumber invokes dream smokes my brain at last

Forbidden fruit

.

Temptation, multiple senses

Magnetic pull

Forbidden fruit ripened

Salivating for a mouthful

Maybe the most delicious

Like you have never tasted

Dare to touch it?

Caress it’s curves?

Peel back the skin?

Reveal its naked flesh?

It could destroy you

With beautiful allure

Hypnotized by its aroma

Bewitched or cursed

Go on take a bite

The stars so bright

.

Gazing at the stars lighting up the sky

Pondering the distance between us

Seeming endlessness, moments lost

Silence painful and yet painless

Reminiscent of your voice

Your words caress my thoughts

Echoing with your twang

Our happiness trumped the world

An unbreakable bond

Shattered into a million pieces

Impossible to reassemble

Hands out stretching

Our reach unforgiving

Clasping at nothingness

You float away into eternity

My heart expired with yours

Memories dwindling but remain

Knowing that we’ll reunite

I’ll stare until I slumber

And dream of you by my side

The stars so bright this night

Gambling addiction

Hi guys,

I am someone who is 35, I’ve got two kids and a busy life, I used to love playing video games, I am a total kid at heart but I finally asked the question after my last episode being addicted to a game.

There are companies out there that deliberately produce games that get you addicted and you find yourself spending money on their games and you can only think about the game.

I had a game called deck heroes, I thought about that game all day, I was in a guild and I could not get enough, yeah I spent money on it, I’m not proud, I was addicted.

I finally asked myself what’s more important the game or my family, my family won and I went cold turkey. I can tell you that it was hard, really hard, but me and the missus argued about me playing that game, I cried because I didn’t want to leave, I felt forced but hey. It’s just a game, you have to pay to advance, there are so many people better than you and well hey hum. It’s lame! Cold turkey, ended. I think about it now and I laugh but I was eating sleeping this game around a baby, a seven year old and my partner.

Ever since I cannot get into games on the mobile phone, they either seem too long or pay to advance.

I recently started dabbling in the casino slot machines on Google plus store, only interested in the highest charted ones, well you get free tokens to start off with, but you lose them quickly, these games look great but I want to play others but I’m stuck, oh my gosh you have to pay to get tokens to advance, so I downloaded another and another and another, I think I downloaded around 5 or 6 but it’s funny, these games are all the same. Use your free tokens that are plentiful to start off with, then zero tokens, but we’ll give you a few hundred every 3 hours, so login play 3 games then buy some more!

I was finding myself wanting to play again and again but I can’t, that’s my addiction kicking in again, I am AWARE of my addiction, I REFUSE to pay money to play, maybe before a few quid wouldn’t of bothered me but here it does. I AM STRONG, I WILL NOT SUCCOMB, games are my drug, I am an addict, my money pays for the cocaine and heroin, I REFUSE.

The argument

.

It’s brewing

Feel it surround

Enveloping two

Go to town

Get it out

In the air

Scream out loud

Lay it bare

Love, hate

Rage with might

Piercing words

Fateful fright

Throw everything

Across the room

Self implode

Hearts go boom

My cheat

.

You don’t mean it, to hurt me

But you do it so well

I know you’ve been with her

You have her smell

Go on, wash off your guilt

And then under the quilt

My dirty prolific liar

You deserve to be on fire

You burn me, deceptive rat

I have to accept and live with that

I’m not sexy enough, we never do it

To make love or even play a bit

You prefer your toy I’m sure she’s young

Beautiful, not like me, we never have fun

What happened to us? Did we just grow old?

When did you decide with your cards to fold?

Maybe I’m to blame? Didn’t do what you liked

Maybe that’s why our sex life stopped it’s spike

But you come back to me every night

You creep around, ever so light

It is just easier to continue, just carry on

Why change what we have? Nothing wrong

I couldn’t be without you, even if you mess around a bit

I know, I’m not stupid, you can be a dick

Sleep my love, snore away next to me

You’re in my bed, my cheat, I agree

I’m addicted to you

.

I’m addicted to you

Like you are a drug

To me you are everything

To me you are my love

I self emplode when you’re not around

I cannot live without your sound

It’s not important what we do

When together, when I’m with you

You make me sane

Your aura of calm

Soothes my eratic

Cocoon embalmed

Your voice so soft

Invade my ears

Give me my drug

Turn me to tears

Your arms surround me

Hold me near

A touch so loving

I forget all my fears

Jealousy

.

Jealousy

It’ll kill you you know

Green, invasive,

Who likes green?

You love them, no?

Give them their space

Space to roam free

To look for better?

To look for someone else?

Oh it’s eating you inside

Eating you alive

More powerful than your anger

Your anger

Your anger

Jealousy can be like a disease

It’s unhealthy to be displeased

To make someone you love

Trapped like a pet dove

They are a human being

It is you that is not seeing

What you are doing

And you’ll only push them away

Your love, remember the first day

The day you two met

Held hands, wept

Cuddled close

And what do you know?

It’s not like it was

Because you do not trust

Your untrust becomes lust

You are a couple, give them space

Just a little bit of grace

To your one and only love

Because you don’t want them to have enough

And flee from you and your jealous ways

You might just find yourself amazed

Her

She don’t want me

Scruffy old me

I’m too skinny, no muscles

I watch as she flees

.

That other guy, he’s fitter

Look at his body, looks

I’m always reading comics

Or my head’s in a book

.

Not interesting, not at all

Like watching pain dry

Just plain old boring

I’m not gonna live a lie

.

She doesn’t notice my hair

My clothes as I try to impress

It seems just like

I’m trying to pass her test

.

I’m sure we like all the same things

Many common interests

If she could only know me

She wouldn’t care about the rest

.

Swallow my overwhelming fear

I’m approaching her, try to talk

I freeze solid in front of her

She smiles, my heart starts to stir

Him

.

He doesn’t want me

I’m not good enough

I’m ugly

Bit of rough

.

Why would he be interested?

I’m not pretty

I’m jealous

Lots of insecurities

.

He won’t even notice me

I don’t even exist

His lips are perfect

Just one kiss

.

He’s ignoring me

No matter how much I try

Do I not exist?

He’s making me cry

.

Am I not even your type?

Not pretty enough for you

Can’t you see my efforts

Invisible shining through

.

Notice me, speak to me please

He’s approaching, what do I do now?

He’s going to say something

I can’t move, have to talk, how?
