Last night I was having dinner with my friends and one of them told me that she wants to write a book on drug addicts. We discussed it for a while and later while coming back to my place I realized that it’s a brilliant and one of the toughest jobs.

I came back to my room, changed and jump on to my ongoing TV series- Dexter. Now for all those who don’t know about dexter, it’s a Tv series featuring a serial killer. He was taught by his father, only to kill those who have escaped the traditional legal system or were never suspected in the first place. {wikied}

Anyways I switch on the show and in the middle of that show there is a scene where a character defines the mental state of addicted. It was a really beautiful description or as I find so. Hence I decided to share…here it is:

I could possibly feel that need.

Like a thousand hiding voices whispering,

"This is who you are. ..…"

And you fight the pressure,

The growing need rising like a wave,

Prickling and teasing and prodding to be fed.

But the whispering gets louder

Until it's screaming, "now!"

And it's the only voice you hear...

the only voice you want to hear….

And you belong to it,

To this... shadow self.

To this... …..dark passenger.

Dexter is an amazing soap, the quality of dialogue very good especially the first person narration by dexter. Good to hear people hooking up on dexter. A must read : 'Darkly dreaming Dexter' (novel on which the soap is based).
