Lovely, lovely nicotine.

Lovely, lovely nicotine.

A Poem by Samantha Koshiol
"

Circa 2011. Lots of lovely depressing pieces from that era. This is not one of them.

"

Inhale that sweet smoke slow. Blow it out, watch it rise.

Lovely nicotine, my mistress of a dirty love affair, I must abide.

I can't hide, the scent lingers on my fingers.

It's meant to keep me craving, and forces common folk to continue misbehaving.

Five dollars a day doesn't seem to faze me.

Hard earned cash turned to cancer, and I rarely question quitting

So I've got no other answer.

But I steady stress over debts and waste money uselessley,

so it's hard to believe that to this very day,

Thousands of dollars have gone towards RJ Reynolds way.
