“Never Again”

Never again

Will I feel sweet supple lips that couple around mine a bitter kiss that I will miss


Will I fall for your slick words and cherry lipstick the way you spark a small wick


Melting wax on a candlestick your words trick sputtering flames to spit and lick


Ceasing creeping flames inhabit the wood pipe of my habit an addiction to have it

Never again

Will you hold me; breathe out smoke in my ears slowly, warm a swarm your words


Go unheard it’s absurd I can’t stop listening to what comes next, your allure


I fall victim but be sure that this time my actions and words will ensure

That I say, “never again”

Never again
