you are no drug

loving you
is not like a drug
i do not chase you
like a high
that never measures up
to the first time
i don’t know about you
but our second kiss
took my fucking breath away
and somewhere along the way
i lost count
but by now
we must be in the thousands
–maybe more
and every
single
time
i am knocked to my knees
the moment your lips touch mine
and when you pry them apart
with your tongue
i doubt the existence
of my next breath
so, no my love
you are no drug
but somehow
i am addicted
just the same
