slow it down

I see beauty in everything.

As I sneak out

To smoke “one more” cigarette

I become

Less and less

Afraid of what’s in the dark.

As I burn my lips

And the tips of my fingers

I try to suck the last of the nicotine

Out of this  “one last” cigarette.


As I watch the smoke

Drift out of my mouth

It reminds me

How something so deadly

Can be so graceful.

As I put the cancer stick

Up to my lips

“One last time”

A single tear falls

And I put out

That last cigarette.
