My first blog on this site & I’m glad I wrote it!
My pain is like this one lone cigarette…. left standing in its pack
I hesitate to light it… it’s all that I have left
In existing… its addiction … is getting less and less
Yet I want to light into its fervor… its many poisons to inhale
My body doesn’t really like it … but the need is a different thing
I want to expand my lungs even deeper… as I keep wondering why
Then I mentally extinguish it …. with languid relief… the embers now braised with the Kiss of the fire of my desire
I put what’s left of that scorched reminder of grief’s last hold on my soul
In the left vest pocket of my heart… forgetting the last time
Waiting for the next…
Now I showed you mine
You wanna show me yours?
