Impressions #3: Drunk

Sometimes when I get a random surge of creativity, I write short impressionist poems/stories. Here’s the third one:


Can you be drunk on inspiration? Drunk on ideas, fresh vibes and elation? Drunk like a child on first snow day.

Can you be drunk on caring? Drunk on love, desire and sharing? Drunk like a boy after first kiss.

Can you be drunk on ambition? Drunk on power, success and recognition? Drunk like a man after first sale.

Can you be drunk on grief? Drunk on loss, madness and unbelief? Drunk like a husband who’s wife died first.

You can be drunk from life or a jar, so should we ever be driving a car?

P.S.: Remember that you can also buy my Impressions ebook with more such poems and thoughts HERE.

  1. Yes, I think you can be drunk on more than just liquor and there are times you shouldn’t drive.

    1. Absolutely! I think people take driving too lightly, there’s an enormous responsibility to getting behind a wheel.

      1. Yeah, I agree. Getting hit in your little car by a truck makes you aware of the awesome forces involved.

      2. Honestly, ever since I know how cars are designed and manufactured, I’ve become fairly fatalistic. Goes double for airplanes too, the procedure of airplane maintenence is enough to make anyone afraid of flying. 🤣 ‘Most failures occur because a part was incorrectly preventively replaced.’

      3. Wow. And you would know.

      4. I trust in the science behind it, but the human factor is what usually causes problems. 🤷‍♀️

      5. They usually are.
