a half smoked cigarette  
that you snubbed out  
deciding I wasn't your brand  
still I desire you  
the gravel in your voice  
rattles my soul  
shakes me to my core  
where did you come from?  
demon, angel  
or something all together different  
so unique to anyone  
I've ever crossed paths with  
your smoky brown eyes mesmerize  
of course you would say this is all silly nonsense  
that I should concentrate on myself  
yet into my dreams your visage comes pounding in  
escapism is at the heart of the matter  
I'm not happy  
you are my distraction  
five years now I've danced on your periphery  
in that time you've picked me and put me down  
you are the tangible in my unsure world  
I'm crazy but you always knew that  
reach in and touch me in my dark places  
feed the fiend in me  
pour gasoline on my fire  
burn me down to the ground with your ferocity  
smoke me with your poetry  
then put me out
