I am like a cigarette to your beautiful mouth. You place me between your lips and bite down; I crush and tremble under your pressure. You inhale my chemicals for a few brief moments. And for those glorious moments pleasure releases through your body. You burn me up with your slow gasps and you have used all of me. You so freely toss me away to float around lonely cold and confused. What is my purpose now that I have been thrown away like useless trash?
But what you don’t realize is that I am poison to your lungs. I cling to your cells and your body involuntarily reacts to the withdrawal of me. You are addicted and you come and use me up over and over not having the strength to quit me. I enter through your lungs but I have touched your heart on the journey and you will never again not think about having just one last drag of me.
