The Urge

 article about The Urge

The urge seizes suddenly,

The finger starts moving rhythmically,
Slowly, at first, but faster, then slowly again.
The ecstasy of it all liberates.

From the mundane humdrum of life,
This is like taking a pill.
Addictive if not careful.
Yet, just like anything else,
It is fine if taken in moderation
