dont become too dependent
on anything toxic to you.
to where you need it to sleep,
and to drag crusty eye boogers
from your crusty eyes.
that includes your liqour, and cigarettes,
or your evil monster in a boyfriend disguise.
Dont become addicted to the smell of anyone.
They’ll leave eventually and
take their smell too.
That leaves you with lingering whispers of them,
all around your room.
It will drive you mad.
Depend on yourself and the things you know
be addicted to your own scent & the way your own skin glows.
Look everywhere, here and there, to and fro…
find the real you, and your inner beauty will show.
