Addicted
by a young woman, age 16

I am addicted.
I am addicted to Sex.
In my addiction, my life is filled with only thinking about sex.
In my addiction, I am glad to feel loved and needed.

I am addicted.
I am addicted to Sex.
In my addiction, I hate to think about that they don't really love me.
In my addiction, the real me becomes hidden and ignored.

I am  addicted.
I am addicted to Sex.
In my addiction, betrayals of myself come in the form
     of moaning and scratches.
In my addiction, I struggle to feel real.

I am addicted.
I am addicted to Sex.
In my addiction, I am hiding my true needing of LOVE.
In my addiction, I'm in a constant battle with myself.

I am addicted.
