May 2013
I breath you in like a drag on an old cigarette
One I've kept in the pocket of my favorite jean jacket
Always there in case of emergency
You fill my lungs with thick smoke, clouding my judgment of what's good for me
And what's not.

I drink you down like golden tequila
Quick and stinging as you glide down my throat with that numbing burn
You taste so warm in my empty stomach
Where you sit and wait
Until you seep up to my brain  
After a bad night's sleep

I swallow you whole
You're my little white pill.
You lay me down to bed
Only to find I feel nothing but everything I wanted to forget

I regret your touch and the grasp you hold inside
Let go of these weary veins
Let these eyes fall to sleep without your heavy shadows
I kiss you goodnight one last time
And tell myself I am good and fine
