Virginia is for Smokers

In love with him and the night sky
And the light
Wispy billows
Inhaling fire and her smoke
bumming one loving one buying one needing one stealing one sharing one
this one
is the last one
you lie
trying to quit when it costs too much or when you are afraid it might hurt eventually and turn on you
he’ll turn on you too
people tell you it will make you sick if you aren’t careful
and you aren’t careful
but what do people know
Wispy billows
In and out of your throat
memorizing every word he ever spoke
capturing his essence from the night sky
In love with his light
you never were careful and that might be how it trapped you
how it suckered you
how he tricked you and owns you
how it turns others off and on and off
watching you from far off
bumming one loving one buying one needing one stealing one sharing one
he’s the one
the latest and only one
He’s wispy billows
that you often choke
you don’t care anymore about how you really feel
if you ever did
you don’t care how you look
in your chest it feels real
this one
is the last one
you lie
especially if its been a long time in between
you don’t care about the weather or how much you’ll have to spend just to pretend
to feel good again
and who can blame you
no one ever had to force you
you are living with your full heart
honestly and quietly accepting what you really want
to die faster
and hurt less
this one
is the last one
for tonight…
you said in your head
In love with him and the night sky
And the light
