vise

there are things
i hold close

things that are
most certainly
not very
good for me

emotional crutches
chemical influences
patterns of fantasy

they have a hold
on me

and i embrace
them back

call it
a foolish consistency

call it
addiction

call it
by any term
you please

someday
it may not
be this way

until then
i call this
me

sometimes
denial
can be worse
than a little
wickedness
