Just Like That

It starts,
As a simple indulgence,
And before you know it,
We are drinking the night away.

In such moments of ecstasy,
Time has no meaning,
It passes without registering,
A single tick.

Blurred yet vivid,
Awake yet amongst dreams,
Inhibitions only for those,
Left bored with empty glasses.

In such nights as I drink,
To lose sense of time,
Dream with my eyes open,
And lose all sense of civil constraint,
I realise,

You had me,
As easily,
As my alcoholic indulgence.
