Favorite Quote:
"Next time I'll be braver
I'll be my own savior
when the thunder calls for me,
next time I'll be braver
I'll be my own savior
standin' on my own two feet." ~ADELE


You are nicotine-stained fingers,
A rattling cough that reminds me that,
yes,
there is still air in my lungs,
I can keep
breathing.
You are my ragged,
broken nails,
every chip and curve
a canyon filled
by nervous energy.
You are a bag of chips,
a banana,
a cheese stick,
a quart of ice cream,
a pack of Starbursts,
and a hot dog,
every bite struggling to
replace the empty pit that is
my stomach.
You are a shining, new credit card,
purchase after purchase
filling my arms,
a poor facade for
debt and guilt.
You are my habit,
and I've found,
that the first step to quitting
is admitting
that you're not my habit.
You're my addiction.
