The Performance

Can drugs be THIS good?

If you haven’t lived it you won’t understand the ecstasy I am feeling.

There’s no instant hit here, the build-up is slow, even tedious. Should I even be doing this? Then…ecstasy!

I live for this rush. I am high, mainlining on adrenalin.

I love this. I can’t give it up.

Blinking through lights I see a blur of faces, hear applause, a roaring empyrean. For me.  My camera eyes record each detail. I want to remember everything so that I can relive the thrill, the high.

But I never can. Not until the next time.
