every now and then I crave you,

as a quitter still craves his cigarette.

I crave to breathe you in and feel you intoxicate me,

even though you burnt me past repair.

it felt good in the moment,

and I fell victim to your coiling blooms of smoke.

but now, I want you to shower your love back onto me,

and rain out the embers of our past

that are glistening and shimmering their life out on the street.
