While love can be and should be the best thing to ever happen to us, in our lifetime, it sometimes comes with pain. This pain be can real. Love can be like a drug, euphoric in nature and it can have addictive reactions.

The "corner L" and capitol I" were in a unknown poem I heard many years ago.


I huddle up inside myself, my stomach churning, twisted in knots as if it went through the ringer on the washing machine.
I crawl over to the corner of the room and make my body bend like an “L” in the corner.
I feel like a junkie on a Saturday night, searching for girl to flow through my veins; to relieve me of this aggravation and pain..
 I want to stand up but it hurts to bad. I want to throw up but I have nothing left inside of me, for my insides have been turned inside out. 
I wonder just how long this addiction will go on.
My hands claw into the hardwood floor, leaving scratches like a cat in heat. I growl like dog threatening to attack myself.
I am begging for someone to come relieve me of this pain; to shoot me; let me die so that I no longer will feel this aggravation.
Oh No! Here it comes again, from the pit of my bowels, comes pressure that chokes the life out of me.
God let me die. I hate this so called state of mind, its not ecstasy!
If I could reach inside myself I would turn my body inside out, then maybe I would feel okay, if not better.
Suddenly if feel your warm embrace, like pepto bismo or malox, I feel you soothing my insides.
I no longer want to be that corner “L”.
I feel myself wanting to stand tall like a capital “I”
The shakes and sweats dissipate, my heart begins to regulate.
You kiss me and tell me its okay.
And as I rise I begin feel freedom from my addiction, because I am with you now.
Free from my addiction because you are with me now. Maybe you didn’t hear me…. I am free of this damn addiction because you are with me now!!!

 I hope that I can beat this, that I no longer need a fix, that I can conquer this addiction, …this addiction,… this damned addiction called LOVE.
