    you do not think of
    me as often as I think of you.
    Truth is
    it’s just too hard to walk away.
    Cold turkey loss.
    I smoke like a chimney.
    Every cigarette
    tastes like you.
    You don’t invade my sleep
    my nights are without dreams
    I might wish for it
    if I didn’t think
    I’d wake crying
    my addiction bleeding anew.
    your voice
    blurred and twisted
    but strong as fuck
    flows over the internet.
    Oh my lord.
    I recall
    your voice
    “I’m not ready
    for this sort of thing.”
    Well neither was I.
    I put a picture
    up on the wall
    a cigarette
    jutting out of your mouth
    a smile
    roguish (I’ve never had occasion
    or the urge
    to use that word before
    but it’s right
    it is)
    and it delivers
    a little emotive cut
    every time I look at it.
    Grief has that effect.
    Don’t laugh.
    Months without
    my taking advantage
    of my own body’s vulnerability
    to me
    and the rolling inevitability
    of one goodbye
    sees nails set to old scars
    and despair is made manifest
    for the first time
    in an eternity of waiting.
    Your voice
    husky and low
    putting that particular touch
    to my favorite song.
    Only you could do this to me
    I laugh at myself
    as I sit here crying.
    I laugh until I forget
    that it started differently.

    Danke darling. I just picked up playing guitar and I'm trying to take up writing music now. Wish me luck. :)

    My goodness!

    This is spectacular.

    Lots and lots of luck to you with the music-writing. Yet you seem a brilliantly creative mind, I'm sure you'll do just fine. xx
