Fire Water

By: Adam Nisivoccia

Clear as glass

Misleading

Tempting

As it hits my tongue

It stings

Engulfing

At first I sip

Then inhale

Finally

Drowning

Stop

I was told

But I didn't

I like the burning feeling

Against my throat

Enchanting

I stumble

I slur my words

I am gone

It swallows me

Additive to my body

As I lose control

I drink my cup

To the bottom

Every

Ounce

Gone
