In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Treat.”
(For me treats come in various packages. Books, movies, songs, pancakes, chocolate, getting to take care of someone. Messing the kitchen up in the name of creativity. And getting a good comment on my blog. I hope you enjoy this response to daily posts writing prompts).
From the very first tome I cracked open ;you had me hooked.
the very first taste lured me to an addiction.
Habits I can’t seem to break or run from. Withdrawal syndrome I suffer.
You have become a coping mechanism. A crutch holding me to your mastery; I am your slave.
I deny your hold but the moment I take flight I land hopelessly at your feet.
What power do you wield!
What sorcery is this?
