Hope (or Lonesome pt 2)

Posted to Action Poetry

Thought I'd cracked it this time
thought I'd learnt to be by myself
who'm I kidding
I'm the recovering junky
As long as I'm not exposed to the demon I'm safe
but a hint of a sniff of a fix and I'm gone
that smile and the glint in her eye
a cheeky wink and a saucy word
and its headlong into the storm once more
