Strangers with Candy

Vividly bursting through my sensory system

with synapses flaring out of control.

I was feeling all shades of blue, then

in popped a multicolored dose of you.

Anticipating relief while awaiting

the desired release.

One hit today, another one tomorrow

swallow this whole to combat your sorrows.

Taking over all five senses

and impairing me with this

chemically imbalanced grief.

Feeling an urgency after each gulp

to escape my new distorted reality.

Such despair could not last as long

as prescribed, unfortunately.

Because with each consumption of you,

bits and pieces were getting lost that I forgot

I enjoyed having inside of me.
