Self Preservation

no amount of smoke
would ever fill that void left inside your chest
no kind of liquor
could ever wash away the hurt that runs through your veins
no false attention
should ever make up for the love you're lacking

this is why we must care for ourselves
in all that we are
and will never be
because in the end
who else will?
