smoking cigarettes

He sits, twisting wrists
Twidling fingers 
Lighter in one hand 
Stroking his thoughts
One puff would calm me
He thinks
I should have stayed
I should have been man enough
She would have been good
I know
She's a good girl now
She's grown and sensible
Shy, but brave
Beautiful and wounded
And her eyes won't stop demanding answers
I look at him now 
I know it isn't my fault
Maybe its the thrill of the flame
Maybe its the thrill of smoke
As it hits ur lungs and sting
Just lightly, making u gasp for air
But want to hold ur breath still
Cos this is good
This will make u feel better
She wants to be thinner
They said it makes ur mouth taste less
So she sits at the back of the room
And steal 2 minutes 
One puff
One deep draw of the devil's breath
And she knows
She sees what he feels
But she wonders if its enough
I'm curious
I want to know too
I want to feel the thrill 
The head rush
And the sex appeal
But I won't die because 
I want to look cool
And I won't succumb to
The piece of stick 
That sucked the life out of him
Dark lips she has
Plump and wrinkly
She smiles and waits 
For the world to return the favor
