• I light up just one more cigarette just to forget,
  • Just to stop the regret,
  • All just to let go and forget all the time we've spent,
  • But now I realize my heart was the one lent,
  • It was always me from the start and now I feel only resent,
  • And now again I'm stuck in the present and its like a painful gift,
  • So again I light one up just to lift the pain,
  • Just to try not to cry and gain what I can from this broken heart,
  • From this broken start I pick myself up just to go down,
  • Just to drown and wear this frown all day long,
  • So today I guess I have to be strong even though you can't be here,
  • So through all the fear and the tears I still hear your voice,
  • This wasn't my choice, no this was yours and now I'm hurt,
  • So could someone come and clean this dirt,
  • Come along and wipe this blood of my shirt before I'm out,
  • Before I let this doubt come and kill me,
  • Come save me because I don't know what's meant to be,
  • Come and open my eyes because I can't see,
  • No this just is not me so again I light it up with fire,
  • Yes I just let the desire fade and I let it come,
  • I let it all flood and I inhale,
  • Yes I inhale and I let go of this regret,
  • I try to forget,
  • I cry and I smoke just one more cigarette.

  • myself and me

    She will fade away with time. I would like to light one cigarette, and sit next to you.

    “Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?”
    ― Mary Manin Morrissey
