'The Addiction'

December 18, 2007|By E.L. SYVERSON / Pulse Correspondent

With the morning chill, my body falls into consciousness.

Something about this morningtriggered my awakening.

Blinded by misery,I open my eyes to lightsindescribable.

This powder brings me to life.

I can smell it, taste it in the air.

That sweet tingle on my skinas blood rushes through my limbs.

Then there's the rush to the headafter one inhaleand I'm suddenly euphoric.

Scream my joy to the skies.

My drug of choice, only available during this time of year,is totally worth the wait.

At last, the snow has come.
