Forward Reaction

Poetry by | October 4, 2015

My windpipe is chockful of smoke
Straining to utter words to woo
Neurons swimming in alcohol
To fool myself that I’m with you

Exasperated; waiting for when
Oxytocin in lieu of nicotine
Dominates my body and brain
And love satisfies, not deride

There is one I seek, from whose love
I will wholeheartedly suffocate
She will not fiddle nor balance
But overwhelm the chemicals in me

She is the catalyst I need
To join, aid, and to complete me
