The rat’s trap

I came here because it is safe,
Giving up one thing to get another,
For you a tool, for me an inconvenience,
A distraction that still distracts,
A rat trap you get to trap rats in,
I mistook for addiction,
Both thinking the other needs it so badly,
It might lure the other out,
When in truth it’s never meant as much
Most people make it out to be,
A tool, a distraction, a rat’s trap,
While the real thing slips out the cracks,
Almost impossible to get back
Regardless of how much we want it.
