Love as a drug

IMG_1179Like a potent potion

Love, the drug-like emotion

Drowns you under its influence

Like an addictive substance

Creates a mood euphoric

Makes speech suddenly rhetoric

Transports you in a world of fantasy

You dive into realms of ecstasy

Even as it stealthily upturns your life

Maddening love makes you feel alive.


Alas, just as a drug wears off

Love may tread into waters rough

And send you on a downward slide

In the caverns of depression so wide

Withdrawal symptoms then appear

Euphoria is replaced by anxiety and fear

Clouds of depression come rolling in

Announcing the end with a deafening din

Acceptance of loss takes time, seems forever

Hurts even after all ties you sever

The highs and lows of love are unique

Love is the potion that all humans seek!
