Addiction

“Addiction is the hallmark of every infatuation - based love story. it all begins when the object of your adoration bestows upon you a heady, hallucinogenic dose of something you never even dared to admit that you wanted - an emotional speedball, perhaps, of thunderous love and roiling excitement. soon you start craving that intense attention with the hungry obsession of any junkie. When the drug is withheld, you promptly turn sick, crazy and depleted. (not to mention resentful of the dealer who encouraged this addiction in the first place but who now refuses to pony up the good stuff anymore - despite that the fact that you know he has it hidden somewhere, goddamn it, because he used to give it to you for free). Next stage finds you skinny and shaking in the corner, certain only that you would sell your soul or rob your neighbors just to have that thing even one more time. Meanwhile, the object of your adoration has now become repulsed by you."

Taken from: Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilberth


Ps: gue ngga lagi dalam masa jatuh cinta atau patah hati. Tapi penggambarannya jeung Liz (Elizabeth Gilberth) di buku ini bagus banget, bukan? ;)
