Smoke another cigarette to take you away
You say the nicotine keeps you sane,
but we both know.
You used to take a pill to help with the numbness,
now they help with the boredom.
Do you remember your old self?
I see it sometimes, peaking out when you talk about school or your ex’s.
I keep an outline of you in my head, a rough sketch of how you used to be.
If you stayed that way forever, you’d still be perfect to me.
