What if Love was a Drug?


love-syringe

What if love was a drug?
How would you take it?

Maybe shredded and rolled
tightly in an old Valentine envelope.
Inhaled deeply.
Then exhaled
directly into your lover’s lungs.

What if it was a pill?
Dancing around your tongue then
washed down with tears.
Dissolving slowly,
setting fire to your blood.

Perhaps you could take your
crushed dreams and desires.
Distill them into a syringe.
Then inject the hit
straight to your synapses.

Or would you go cold turkey?
Shivering and sweating,
holding back bile.
Weaning yourself
from that drug called love.

  1. I don’t know why, but when I saw the heading, I thought of one question: If Love was a drug, will it be banned by law? :D, It will be a pretty miserable living, don’t you think? Awesome poem, loved it! Oops, Don’t tell the authorities 😀
