When it comes
It’ll creep up on you
Like nicotine withdrawal.
You won’t even know what
Is trying to overcome you
You just feel like something is different about you.
Your lungs breathe oxygen
And you can’t handle
Having just that anymore.Your fingertips are free
With nothing in between them.Your lips are sealed tightly
With nothing in between them.
You have no breaks within the day
Where you can sit for seven minutes
