The Most Lethal Drug by: Corra Maddox

The one thing all of humanity can agree on is that the most powerful emotion in this twisted world is love

That is what we desire 

What we crave

Love is what the world thrust at us at every turn

From books to movies and music

All we are told is it is overwhelming and magical

But despite this, worldly love is like a drug

It strikes you and you overflow with so many emotions

You are unstoppable

All you need is your love

All you need is you and your partner

Love is all consuming

It makes us feel invincible

It is beautiful and glorious

But while this is occurring, you are dying

It is slowly taking everything 

Your personality 

Your social life

Your identity

You don’t realize it right away, but you start seeing the signs

You start feeling this dread 

You know this is no longer safe but you can’t walk away

You want to keep feeling those great emotions 

You think that if you just try harder they will be want they once were

They never will though 

They were never true emotions

They were illusions 

Sweet, beautiful, deadly illusions

You keep fighting for another hit 

Trying to get it to be the overwhelming love you once felt 

But that wasn’t love

No one truly knows what love is so humanity made up their own love

But the world’s love is just a deadly drug

It is the most lethal drug possible

Because no one realizes what it did to them until the reason they had the drug in the first place is gone

And they realize

They are just a shell of who they once were
