Breaking Free
Author: Catyrose


Feelings suppressed year after year
Tears submerged from lifetimes long since past
Without warning, a flood of fear washes over me
As I struggle to break free
From the ties that bind me

My very being cries out for you
Pacing relentlessly across the cold hard floor
Straining to find an open door
To sanity and peace of mind
So elusive in this present space and time

A puff of smoke would calm this tempest
Swirling round and round inside of me
Thoughts race back and forth within this addict’s mind
Sadly none of these are very kind

Emotions running to and fro
As I struggle to let go
Of the self-destructive urges
Burned down deep within my soul

------- Author's Notes -------

Written as I attempt to break free of my addiction to nicotine.
