BAD HABITS

 

I never use to drink, never before / never use to smoke, ever before. Kept your company too long, you led me into the den of sin, I got hooked while trying to save you from yourself, now myself alone has nasty habits. Your own bad habits you’ve overcome, you got me hooked on your habits then left me alone, after years of sharing your jaded life: I against my true will, did the things I said I’d never do. You left me all alone for another lover and dropped me like a bad habit. While I rescued your heartless and numb heart, I pulled you through and left myself behind to wither and die. Addicted to you and all torn apart. I sit contemplating suicide, hoping to die, since you dropped me like a bad habit. One hard lesson learned is "life goes on"; While I die alone”. As the plane goes down; The First mask you should put on, is your own.!

Ouch! That's a hard pill to swallow, I am certain. Well-penned, deep piece of work.
