Withdrawal Symptoms

Suck me in, bury the pain
Inhale me, don’t go insane
Just once, do not refrain
Let me solve your complain

Waiting here, yours to gain
I promise to heal the brain
Only once, do not restrain
Let me solve your complain

Pick me up, let me explain
Light me up, experience again
Believe me, do not disdain
Let me solve your complain

Yours to take, and regain
Eternal lovers, we remain
“Not just a butt”, think again
Let me solve your complain

In response to the TOP, voice of a cigarette!

Oh, right, I've been there, too! A voice of vice! Nicely done!

Although I have never smoked, I'm sure many smokers out there who have tried quitting would agree that your creative words have captured the "essence" of 'cigerette refrain'. Beautiful writing!

As a smoker - cutting down - I understand this one :-)

I'm sure my sister would relate more than I do, but this is really good.

I never smoked or anything.

I know how addictions can go.

One last time comes often.

the insistent voice of addiction / bad habit, thankfully when I see a cigarette it doesn't speak to me like that!

That's so good! I've never been a smoker, but I was very much opposed to the smoking ban that came in here last July. So I decided to smoke a big fat cigar in the minutes before the ban came in.

If you are intersted I wrote about it here

An addiction poem.. I like it. Gosh, smoking must really bog you down. I've been through other bad habits tho, and I assume that it's the same. You only do it cuz it makes u feel good only for the moment and then u hate it after wards.
