Day 1 – A-Z Poetry Challenge (A)

Let’s kick off the A-Z with:

A – Addict

This is a poem I wrote a couple of years ago. Inspiration came from a  picture prompt of a black bottle like the one below:

Addict

Black bottle
stares,

wills me
to pick it up.

Hand creeps
towards its wide bottom,

fingertips brush,
pull back.

It gloats,
beckons.

Just one shot,
amber liquid trickles—

Tang of timber
tickles nostrils.

Shove it away,
it shouts too loud.

I raise it to my lips,
sip—

Swill the smooth fluid,
savour—

Throat glows.
Refill—
