Poem: Addictive Behavior

There are all types of addictions and I have had some of them.

Addictive Behavior

Addictive behavior is, well . . .
sort of . . .
damned if I know . . .
And I find myself
showing all the symptoms

A romantic in a time
long past white tie and tails
A child, grinning helplessly
long past my childhood
A writer of long letters
in an e-mail age

But I’ve given up the cigarettes
after five decades of decadence
And never really into drugs,
I find one glass of wine enough
and allow myself to savor
my romantic writing child

Share it with me
Sit down, we’ll tell some tales
of friends we loved
of treasured books
and games that made us smile
A couple of addicts, you and me
