This is a slick elixir, for you never know that its in your System even after you chugged it, drowned in it or perhaps your Ego had manners and simply sipped upon it.
It isn't an isolated Poison but it is a Systemic one. It ruins your Appetite. Your appetite for Love, Life and Your visions. It corrupts your eyes, for all you can see is Brokenness, Decay and Ruins. Of your Self/ of your Heart/ of your Mind /of everything. //
It gives you an almost Reverse Midas touch. Where everything that was Gold turns to Dust, to Rust, and eventually just seems to disappear altogether.
When Intoxicated to the point of Overdosing, you find out there is an antidote. A remedy to this madness and something that will REALLY quench your thirst
...it is You. Your truth. It is the cold drink that you Forgot you Needed because the Internal Heat was burning you Alive.
// It is the cleansing tea with a top secret formula you haven't heard of or seen in 17 Lifetimes...it is Self Love. //
Drink in. Drink up. Healing is here.
