Thought Juices

Updated on February 13, 2012

And so they flow, five rivers encased in bone, those chemicals

we don’t see but can’t live without. With drugs some move faster

than others; in moments of terror or instances of joy the waves

come crashing down.

Sometimes they flood us within,

the currents become too strong and we’re trapped by the mind’s undertow.

You don’t need a bathing suit to swim in serotonin,

or a board to ride the dopamine surf.

You need only to be alive to feel the electric fluids.

Right now you’re reading this poem.

Maybe it’s manifested some sort of significant emotion in you.

Ah my how your brain is wet.

      Well this poem isn't really about how drugs affect the mind. It's more a general observation of how our brain chemicals work. Thanks for reading!

      I'm just appalled on the thought of someone destroying one's body...we can choose the life to lead...
