Addiction

by Azurite Phox

Age Group: Adult



Thumb and fingers flick

Chemical ashes fall

A kiss as I breathe in

Harshens my voice

And fills rooms with gray

No matter the disgust

Stubbornness wins

I know the number

I want the strength

But behind my eyes

Lingers a healthy lie

Whenever a stress

Whenever a jam

Venality beats my loved ones

As I choose my cancer friend




Author's Notes: This was written January 19, 2011. My creative writing professor wanted the class to write a poem about an object in our room as a homework assignment that is due 01/20. So I decided to write about my cigarettes and incorporated what they meant to me and how indirectly important they are in my life. Recently, I tried calling this phone line called 1-866-SDQuits. But I gave up on returning any of my coach's calls because my attempts at quitting smoking have been unsuccessful mostly due to the fact that I, myself do not really want to quit. I have only tried to quit because my friends and family want me to and then there's the whole health issue; which in all honesty, I am not too serious about. But here it is, so read it and weep
