Just    Let   Go

Blog Post created by Mandolinrain on Nov 3, 2018

I THOUGHT I WAS IN LOVE

But I was deceived

The cigarette pulled a fast one

Right over me

 

I thought I couldn’t feel

Unless it was there 

To smooth over the ripples

When I felt nobody cared

 

I thought it was my friend

And would always comfort me

It was gone with the last drag

All that was left….was me

 

I thought it made me stronger

To take care of everybody else

But in the end

I felt like the dust.... up on a shelf

 

I thought it was relaxing

Eased the tension, saved the day

If only …….no….,it prolonged it

No dilemmas went away

 

I thought I loved to smoke

I thought I could never be without

I thought I could never quit

 ( See we have lots on common…)

We just wanted out

 

It never changed a thing

Over any given situation

Although it gave an instant hug

 Promising  immediate gratification

 

 

I thought it would de-stress me

False courage with invitation…

Only it just magnified my weakness

 

 

Then I had a revelation…..

 

I THOUGHT I WAS IN LOVE

 4 years -2 months ago

I’m glad I smartened up

And 

Just  ~ let ~ go
