Word Prompt-42 Potion

Your mind is flooded with emotion

Thought you earned that promotion

Or that love and devotion

Turned out it was corrosion

Made you consider poison

Or turn into a nicotian

Is this a proper notion?

Won’t soothe your heart like a lotion

What’s needed is a forward motion

To stop your mind’s demotion.

Is there a happiness type of potion?
