The Beast

The Beast
Addiction is a slavering beast
Wearing doppelganger skin
Eyes shining with madness
It can be chained 
But not tamed 
Every day a battle
Nights another war
But we have come to an agreement
This cunning foe and I
After giving my pound 'o' flesh
(Weighed on the crooks scale)
I live with the foul fiend's breath
Hot upon my neck
Fangs dripping
Saliva running cold rivulets
Down my spine
Always there,watching,waiting
My chained demon
Who's a good boy?
