Awakening – [Poem]

 

Monotony
dulls the senses

passion
leaves you charred
to the bone

moderation
makes you greedy
secretly longing
for more of the same thing

so

like water
touching naked
dirty skin

or crinkly plastic paper
peeled frantically from
sticky candy

is awakening
to an unimaginably
sweeter life
