Bloodrush anti-thought, the cosmic ache- a friend
Armtouch chemical and empty-skinned- a friend
Breath out careful catching tooth betray- a friend
Wantneed watching laughing fingertip- a friend
Forgetpower coursing through and drinking up- a friend
Addict maddened wastrel wasted weight and break- a friend
Hungry happy sunlight shining treetops bend- a friend
Gentle tired trying smile sighing spite- a friend
Tripping tonguetip foot and lipslip glancing hips- a friend
Howling high and heyday hurry feel again- a friend
I did not think
a smile sink
would bring me to the end
But in the light
and very near
I nearly felt
- a friend

You have a fine way of defininf things. This poem is like listening to jazz. I love reading it out loud. Because it feels like I'm singing a jazz song. I love the alliteration in this.
