Intoxication

I'm a drinker
of views, panoramas, vistas,
an alcoholic
that just needs one more
I can share,
then drink you under the table.

Intoxicated
I recall places, people,
faces, names
from foreign shores
and exotic locations.

Hung over,
sometimes forgetting
what I want to remember
and remembering
who I want to forget.

Lifeaolike I am , but just like an alcoholic , or a drugadick , some times the good times are good , the bad times bad , some how keep going back for more , in the hope the good times will roll , just one time.

You have put a very positive spin on the word "lush." : )
