I Smoke Because Of You

2 Comments

I smoke because of you

and I know I shouldn’t blame you

but the reality is

you stress me out

and I have no doubt

that I will get seriously aggressive

mean ass temper

the pull of nicotine calms me

from turning into Qui Ma

The bitch

I smoke because of you

and I know I shouldn’t blame you

but the reality is

you have a knack for annoying me

the way most do not see

is the frustration of the beast

volatile words seep off the tongue

blowing the smoke allows me to compose

the one I keep hidden

The monster

I smoke because of you

and I know I shouldn’t blame you

but the reality is

you burn me up like flames

and while I hold the reigns

I honestly don’t want to hold back

fed up mentality

these cancer sticks are killing me

want to deal with you without

The addiction

    My poetic version of this would be called alcohol. I can dig it.
