Linger

The fire slowly burning the tip of my cigarette

As every puff lessened it by a pinch

– ​So is your fleeting scent. 

The night is about to end, and with it comes 

the promise of a new day. 

I didn’t want to stop. 

I didn’t want it to end. 

Like cigarette, my memory of you weakens by 

the moment.

– It fades into darkness. 

And I light another cigarette and start over.

theuglywriter is like water. Put water into cup. Water takes the shape of the cup. Put water into bottle. Water takes the shape of an effin bottle.
