I buzz with unspent energy sparking intermittently
with bursts of psychological output like a shorted circuit.
My body vibrates in tune with every ambient rhythm
and my eyes sparkle with the shimmer of a silver disco ball.
Euphoric like a woman under the spell of cocaine,
serotonin and dopamine soak my brain causing a natural high.
High like the shining Chrysler in all her glory, but I know
that this natural, unnatural state has a zenith.
I soar across my mind on wings of Icarus destined
to get too close to the heat of the manic sun
and come hurtling back to earth like a meteor
all aflame with nothing but my tears to quench it.
