Breaking These Addictions - Poem by Isaak DeMaio

The sign reads 'exit, '
she never intended him to leave,
trust walked out the door,
he's not that easy to believe.
 
Smoking away the stress,
her broken heart burns,
every flick of the lit cigarette,
a little more she becomes concerned.
 
Crying endlessly,
an addiction of love,
falling short,
needing a shove,
her lack of hope,
confidence falls apart,
insides choke,
bleeding heart.
 
Opportunity,
wishes and dreams,
invisibility,
too shy to scream,
all of her emotions,
concealed by walls,
trust in her friends,
I won't let her fall.
