like a lover uninvited,
breathed the smoke to say you tried it,
now addicted, you can’t fight it.
moments you’ve forgotten,
cold as steel and soft as cotton,
free desserts for those who want them,
they never notice that they’re rotten.
a secret behind my tongue,
disease encased inside my lungs,
a wordless song that can’t be sung,
a heart that can’t admit it’s done.
