Coffee & Cigarettes- your only escape

 

You enjoy your morning coffee lukewarm with a well-packed cigarette on the side.

 

Your coffee is always golden brown

with an unpleasant bitter taste that lingers.

 

Your lungs are forever stained black;

a nasty reminder of what is grasped hourly between your fingers.

 

One day, your heart won’t have the strength for another “just one last time.”

 

But that coffee and cigarette breath is something I cannot quite forget.

 

That damned nicotine,

A silent killer

Take a drag

And your life is with her.
