There is no pain when it enters my veins
only excitement and anticipation.
My heart immediately reacts
the pulse sounding in my ears.
The burn spreads as quickly as the rising sun
extending all the way to my fingertips, my toes.
My stomach flips.
My tongue ties.
I’m overly aware of every inch of my skin.
The high is almost too much to handle
I am giddy as if I’m 10-years-old again.
And the butterflies that have been absent for too long
energetically return to my stomach.
My body reacts to your eyes
when you turn them on me
you might as well stick a needle in my arm.
I cannot control it
nor do I want to.
Your gaze is electric
and my body is shocked.
And just like a drug, as soon as you walk away
all I want is more.
