Love is My Drug

I worship all your flaws as you fall before me.
You stagger in my direction and fall to the floor.
You laugh at all my jokes but you don't include me.
I just make you bored. 
Love is my drug and your smile gets me high for awhile.
But I can't entertain you anymore.
I can't rearrange you. 
I can't control your urges, splurges, and purges. 
I'd bleed for you if you would only stay,
My recovery pushed you away. 
Love is my drug and your smile got me high for awhile.
Our affliction, your addiction.
