We are

We are
words unrequited,
like a lover uninvited,
breathed the smoke to say you tried it,
now addicted, you can’t fight it.
I am
moments you’ve forgotten,
cold as steel and soft as cotton,
free desserts for those who want them,
they never notice that they’re rotten.
You are
a secret behind my tongue,
disease encased inside my lungs,
a wordless song that can’t be sung,
a heart that can’t admit it’s done.
