Only Tonight

July 21, 2015

 

I look forward to the smell
The one that drips down
I salivate for the taste
The one that self medicates
I feel naked without this manmade light
One that burns to the touch more
When the light fades to dark
I envy the night
As I run past the day
Sickness is felt before
While I sniff my illness away
Oh how I love this rush
Like a car speeding past a stalled train, and a traffic jam
Oh how I love the lust 
As I lie to everyone about being content as a man
This room is dark
The one I have entered
The drip is stale
Creating a balance not permanent
But now centred
Who am I
Without this drug
Who am I 
Merely a man who chooses to find
And loose
Love
So my quest begins again
For manmade light
Until the dawn of tomorrow
A day that is 24 hours in a capsule
24 hours in a room with shut blinds
Crumbling only to reveal the next night, I just can't fight
Without the drip
There is only tonight
There is only tonight
My body is bent
