one sip
i
sipped love like wine
cautiously
afraid of becoming inebriated
repeatedly
secretly desiring to be drunk
lost somewhere between
paranoia and utopia
falling into finely fermented fits of
passion
feverishly finding forms of folly to fulfill longings of
fantasia
all the while apprehensive about following the footsteps of
my feelings
finding it to late to free myself from this futileness
i must admit
i'm now an alcoholic
dependent on delusions derived from the vine of
intimacy
though a skeptic still, still i must feed the needs of
dependency
disillusioned now am i, afraid to try
new things
for fear
they will be
habit forming
and ignorantly
i will become
addicted from
one sip
