Just a sip

Taking a dose

of a love potion

It tastes sweet as a piece of candy.

It slips down your throat.

It gives you more devotion, asinine, and watchful.

The effect woozy, bright-eyed, and courage.

You definitely want to try it again.





Taking a dose

of a sleeping potion

It tastes like black licorice.

It gives a bad after taste.

It gives you flashbacks, lost memories, and dreams.

The effect dizzy, senseless, and tiredness.

You want to take it quickly.



Taking a dose

of a death potion

It tastes like dentist numbing shot.

It suffocates your throat.

It gives you blackness, cold, and no heart beats.

The effect dead.

You do not remember it at all.

This poem was also interesting---by the first stanza, I was intrigued. I like the descriptions in this piece~
