Quitting Again


Poem Commentary

A swan song to addictive habits, behaviors, etc. . .

Quitting Again

It’s here with me when I sleep
It’s here with me when I speak
I wonder if it will ever let me be
Or if it will nosily make a peep
Just one more time cries my soul
To leave it alone is my one true goal
Blood rushes to my head as I plunge
And my body soaks it up like a sponge
Just one more time cries my foe
Just one more time as I fall below
Quitting is harder than trying to fail
I wish for a beach a boat to set sail
But my dereliction never comes to fruition
It’s taken my life’s prominent position
Let me breathe and let it heed my cry
As I seethe, I hope to quit or die
It’s with me when other’s are not there
It comforts me when other’s words are bare
I can’t see it, but it sees me well enough to know
It’s in my forecast for today and many tomorrows

i relate this is my story but my vices are odd... i love this SO MUCH

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
