Just a Cup of Tea

Could tea be my new alcohol?

I would let it fool me that I am warm 

I would drink it as it burned down my throat

I would let it take control 

 

Because for awhile, a very short while

The tea will be my euphoria 

 

Releasing my endorphins free

I will feel relieved

Just for that short moment

After the buzz is gone. 

 

I am cold

My  throat, raw

My body lost

Temptations, old 

 

Because for awhile, a very short while

The tea was my euphoria

 

Setting my stress free 

The pain settles, but twice as hard

A collection of short moments

All on repeat, but I can hardly recall 

 

I am gone

My throat is annihilated

My body is useless

 

Because for awhile, a very short while

 

I believed substance could aqcuire to my abstance 

Of feeling nothing at all
