The Sweetest Drug

Click goes the lock on the door
Keys thrown on the table
Light flicked on
Waitress uniform
Taken off
Life, taken on
I can’t sustain myself
On silk charades and mental games
Memories to make, are too far away
The best I can do, is bottle it up and put it behind a mirror
Like prescription medicine too potent
For this tiny frame

The Sweetest Drug
I’ve ever had
Is the bitter pill of you

I’ve got a problem
And I 
Spending half the night
Fishing metaphors out of buckets
To explain to him
How strong
This addiction
Will become

He’s my sweetest drug
Constantly on my mind
I can’t get anything done
When a part of him isn’t in my system
These feelings multiply

Every second that he’s gone

Baby, you..
Have you any idea?
My affliction
Won’t let me live
I get so confused
Simply put
When I’m in bed, alone
Shadows play on the wall
Telling stories I refuse to repeat

My eyes see a world of eternal clichés 
Restless legs and fluttering eyelashes
From dusk til dawn
Painted acrylic emotions jaded
Spill down around my waist
My logic, is gone

I know I should stay away from it
It’s no good for me
But I find myself running to the medicine cabinet 
Frantically searching 

The Sweetest Drug
I’ve ever had
Is the bitter pill of you
