My Third Rate Romance was kind of strange addiction which I get when I was a teenager.
I don’t remember exactly how it started but it goes on and on and it becomes a part of my life.
An addiction !
Living without it , was a total black out for me.
I know they (parents) warned me right,
I know it was not good for me, not fit for me at all
But…i couldn’t stopped.
And it started to show what It got finally
Pain, wounds, marks
I was fool to think I am the one who was cutting it into pieces,
but that was the one who was sucking my blood and drying me out
giving me stains and marks so dark…but i couldn’t stopped.
until the day comes,
when It ate me all,
Dried my body and bring me down
gave me sick bed and showed what it really was.
YES, A BETEL NUT
I got jaundice due to this habit of eating Betel nut all the day, it really dried me out.
My father then showed me how this Betel nut sucks the liquid so quickly by placing it into a cup of water.
Next day I saw, the Betel nut absorbed the water and swell.
My father said: That’s how it takes your blood also.” ( It was horrifying for me)
That was the day, I left eating this nut and throw away this cutter also.
