She comes at me wielding a needle.
I roll up my sleeves
I need this drug
I want this drug.
She is not forceful
taking the necessary precautions:
Sterile hyperdermic needle
My skin cools as she wipes it with alcohol.
Best to be safe.
I feel a prick and out of the corner of my eye
see the plunger on the syringe slowy descend.
I feel nothing.
The effect is never instaneous
The needle is removed
a band-aide placed.
Her head is lowered and all I can see
is the top of the baseball cap
the bill hiding her face.
She slowly raises her head and
I can feel the drug take effect
as my eyes lock on hers
A smile that lights up the world.
Blue eyes that shine.
She reaches a hand up and
brushes a strand of hair from my face.
Everything else in the world blurs and I see only her.
My whole world.
