Love it! The rhyme gives the piece an adventurous feel and gives the poem an easy pace to follow. I especially enjoyed the imagery at the beginning - drinks, swallow, sinks down etc. Amazing :)

I got the feeling again, when starting to read this poem, that the first four lines were just perfect. Loved them. And the rest of the poem doesn't carry the same impact. The ending feels like an ending, but it borders on cliche. It's apparent to me that you can create lines that really make people say "wow.." but that knowledge makes me wish the rest of this poem was crafted with the same power.
Another reviewer once advised that it's better to be concise and powerful that to sort of repeat the same ideas with different words. To that, I would add my encouragement: you have talent, and the more you create your very own wonders..
"My curiosity ventures
Where my sense dares not follow.
My imagination drinks
What logic dares not swallow."
...the more you will distance yourself from cliches.
