Nicotine

I call myself nicotine
Infectious little smiles that cause rings around your eyes
Ignite me
We can just blow smoke tonight
I like to get caught in your lungs and steal your breath away
I'm fire with your sight roaming
When there's nothing more to say
Free me outside
Letting you watch me dance away with no need for goodbyes
I twist around your torso and mingle in with the fabric of your clothes
Unable to be contained
I am at home floating in space
I remain in the ashes on your doorstep
Waiting for the wind to sweep me away
Torch my exterior and I become unwhole
But that's the way I want it,
Chaos but fully in control
I am nicotine
Left swirling after you
Painting pictures in the air
Wondering if you see through my strokes
Or if you even want to
So tempting
To take what I offer
I am forever spinning
Waiting for my dancing partner
