Carbon Monoxide -CO- Week 3: Talkin' 'bout My 'noxide

The steady pull
of temptation--
a tease on
my resolution.

When I can sleep, 
I take what dreams 
afford me.
In these dreams,
my 'noxide comes
to ward me.

Her smoke is an invitation.
my conscience
falls for
the con science
of my imagination.
I give in
and reality spins.

Between the sleeps, 
I lie in sanity. 
I wonder:
Did I give into 
my humanity?
did I'd err?
Is that
smoke in the air?

There is smoke in the air. Second hand smoke... And it harms. So, save yourself from more lung damage and keep resisting. If not for yourself, then for those around you. Your writing is quite good.

Its takes a man to admit when he is wrong. I felt the wrath of one man for 3 years. I was only 2 inches tall when I left him. It took a lot of Gods intervention to keep me from making a very permanant decision. I am so thankfull you realized it in time. You are very precious in my book.-AA
