Nicotine Spirit

Empty stomach

Brimming brain

Lungs invite the nicotine   

Feel it spreading through my veins 

 

Sudden attention bestowed to me  

A subtle moan, a desperate plea

Who am I in sober wake  

A shitty state for pity’s sake    

 

Loneliness awake the ache

Heart bending not to break  

A memory that won’t retain   

I am no victim of my mistakes 

A night of regret for numbness sake    

Eyes pleading take the pain   

 

A moment something satisfies

I rest, relax, press into lies  

And then I find myself alone   

Once again cut to the bone  


There is no love  
There is no sight  

There are just words  

Whisper I’m alright   

 

And in the dark   
Embrace the night 

I beg this heart

Give up the fight
