I Shoot up on Words- Sweet Addiction

I shoot up on words
Feeling the surge
Living the psychedelic transformation
Of reality...
Bursting into an explosion of colors
Emotions
Sensations
Surreal existance 
I ride it high
This wave
Knowing my addiction
Is devouring my soul
My mind
My heart
My body
My desires
My dreams
My essence

Withdrawal symptoms…
I’m sick
I wretch
I scream
I flail my arms
Ravaged by nightmares
Fixated by one thought
My next high
My next trip
Into a better place

But the drug is withheld...
To punish
To torment
To subjugate
To tease
And I become part of the living dead
Listless
Uninterested
Unmoved
In hell….

Until…the next dose is prepared
My fix of words…poetry…LIFE
MY DRUG OF CHOICE
And I shoot up
Multiple times

Addiction…
Pure and Sweet
MY ADDICTION...
From which
There is no release
And no rehabilitation.

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    We share the same addiction and the same love.. poetry, words, letters...... tools necessary to build our own world of imagination, creativity, and passion... a realm where all colours, races, sects, and fantasies are harmonized!! Lovely write as usual Queen Eileen!

    I really like how you made an addiction out of something that I know so many of us can relate to. Just wish I could get my hubbie to understand it. He hates poetry! This was GREAT.

    Oh Andrea....my husband is indifferent to poetry. Hate, at least, involves some sort of passion! ;) Yes...this IS an addiction for me. I can't go a day without it! Hugs!
