Ecstasy

Warning: Mention of explicit drug abuse. The poet discourages any and all types of recreational drugs and their abuse.

The pin pointed hypodermic
Slips into the crease of her elbow,
And the spot stings sharp
Like a dot of pain
In an ocean of restless tension.
The chemical is forced into
The confines of her veins,
Breathing fire into every capillary.
The after-sting
Of the hasty withdrawal
Is overshadowed
By the killing ecstasy
That now resides in her blood,
Slowly killing her each cell.
