Didn’t have any time to recharge, so down went another bottle of caffeine and sugar
Really, sleep was in order, demanded even, but she ignored it
As she had too much to do and way too little time to get it all done
It would have made her cry, except after fifteen years of doing this, this was normal
Now if she had only believed her mother before she had become a mother herself…
Sugar dissolved inside fizzy water
Oh, how sweet the sensation
Drinking this invigorating concoction
And tasting its echo on the follow up belch
Scrunching up her face in reaction to sipping the drink
Obviously, it was much tarter than what she was expecting
Uttering a sharp laugh, her partner handed her a sugar cube as an apology
Refusing the cube, she gave it another sip. It was better this way.

Everything comes out ooey, gooey, and so bad for you. Yum!

(I have not tried them yet, but they look awesome!)
Saccharine dreams and ideals permeate her world
Winding her up into a sugar coma
Everything becomes a surreal new reality
Enabling dark pits and holes to grow in the enamel of her TV smile
That didn’t matter though, because the nothings told her so
Cutting the powder with confectioner’s sugar was risky
Uncouth dealers are the norm, but me, I have leveled up
Risk verses reward, it’s all about the bottom line
But my sweet twist this time might get me kicked to the ….
