Having a Relationship with a Cigarette


 

With you

In you

I am yours

I am you

 

Oh, How I love the way

You cough

And my name comes out

 

At times

I can be too much

At times

I am never enough

 

God, How I love the way

You light my fire

For all the world to see

 

How I wish I could

Show the world your heart

From the time you breathe my air

That would make a great start

 

But you

Are not me

You use me

Until I wither away

And lie with the ashes

On the earth

 

I am yours

I am you

 

Oh God, How I love you

There are others in your life,

I’m sure

But each time you touch me

I know that I touch you, deeply

 Heart and soul

 

I want you

When you want me

               Need me

 

 What’s so sad is

I’ll be there for you

Even when you’re gone

 

I am you

I will be you

 

There’ll be others like you

Others like me

 And I’ll touch them

      as you did me

As I wither

So will you

 

 

I want you

When you want me

               need me

 

Oh God,

    How I love the way

 I kill you
