The Quit

Nicotine drips from his flesh,
Brawn tainted by addiction cries
Emotions enmesh—
Nicotine drips from his flesh,
With tobacco laden breath
The crinkle of burning paper dies 
Nicotine drips from his flesh—
Tissue, tainted by addiction cries

    a powerful poem. Addiction is very hard to quit. Love that final line!
