A Much Better Addiction

Work Text:

My hands shake with a fine tremor
As do yours
But for very different reasons

You are addicted to excitement
Thrills and chills
A rush of motion and emotion

So am I
But I chase my high
Not in the glory of battle
Or under a cloak of good will
Like you
But rather in the solace of a needle
Or the puzzle of a mystery

You are so much more
Well-adjusted in your dysfunction
You are so much more
Pure in your actions and desires
You are so much more
Then I will ever be

I love you for that
(Among a million other things)

I want to hold your hand in mine
In steady times
In shaky times
In all times

I want to be your addiction
As much as you have now become mine
