leaned back on a brick wall
you were short and I was tall

we were backlit by translucent moons
while a fingernail became a flesh wound

You said you'd rather smoke than breathe. There's half a pack left, don't leave.
I feel you now skin deep! You said,

"I'd rather smoke than breathe!!"
"There's a half pack left don't leave."
"Who am I ??!?!"
"Go to sleep."
"Never wake me up."
"Oh please."
"Close your eyes"
I feel you now skin deep...
but i'd rather smoke than breathe"
