Vices - Poetry - 1st March 2018


Vices

You could be the cigarette
Hanging by the tip
Between my cold cracked lips
I could be your shot of liquor
And the pill that helps you feel
something more

An opiate based lover’s dream.

You could be all that I need
A way for me to feel
            something more
Thoughts of you multiply
They creep inside the cracks
Beneath the foundations

The parasite becomes one
with the host.
