Okay in Moderation

Composed 7/21/13
Description: My response to today’s Daily Prompt: Party Animals.

Some people get their sugar
From crowded rooms and cigarettes
From the vibrations in the earth
From laughs and possible regrets
They do their longing, seizing motions
Into the hours of the moon
And when they crash they grab their lifelines
Instead of drowning in their solitude
But it only takes a spoon or two
To give me a sugar rush
And in the end I take so little
I don’t mind the withdrawal much
In fact I like those moments
When my body can be cleansed
I feel a little more myself
When the sugar high ends
