A smokers heart

Running,panting,sweating blood,
my chests a river and a bleeding flood.
Cursing,ripping, this beating heart,
how it hates to be torn apart.
The racing drum within my chest,
calls to halt this violent test.
Lungs are black,and engine broke,
no more strength is left to yoke.
Simply now there was a pause,
hold your tongue and find the cause.
My fault alone,by my own hand,
I broke apart this one man band.

    Such beauty in composition, such violence in recognition! I can't find the desire to quit. I know I just have to ask for it, yet I don't. Thanks for the encouragement. Whew! love, karen
