I ate a piece of kiwi today,
I enjoyed every second of it,
Making it last as long as possible,
But as soon as it was gone,
I was sick,
My throat started to close,
Eyes started to water,
Once my pain was gone,
I wanted more,
I had to have more,
I had to have another taste,
This time I had a bigger piece,
Big enough to fulfill my desire,
Or so I thought,
This time it made my eyes puffy ,
My skin got bumpy,
My throat hard,
But I still wanted more,
I didn’t care what it was doing to me as long as I had it,
One day I had to much,
My throat closed,
I couldn’t breath,
Choking and gasping for air all I could think about was kiwi,
A couple minutes of happiness,
For my life

i am allergic to kiwi but i love the taste. i was inspired by a poem i read about a girl who was allergic to peanutbutter and her boy friend forgot. when he kissed her he ended her life.

I really like this poem, and I can see how it could be used as a metaphor for drug addiction. Good work!
