"Don't chase me. Until your ready to catch me"

-Callie Torres

Rotten Teeth.
Ruined Lungs.
The puff of smoke that hits like a gun.


The sudden plead to breathe.

Gray as can be.
The hole in my throat is easy to see

Heart slows down.
Body weakens.

Why is it always air I’m seeking?
It’s hard.

It’s tough.
And all it took was one puff.

The author's comments:

Smoking kills 55 people every hour. Before you pick up the white and yellow stick of death. Think. What will people lose without you? Be the one who dosen't smoke.
