Bad Habits

Standard
I understand why he’s so scared

That love ran deep
It’s still in his veins
Bad habits are hard to break
Although adopting them as
Part of you

Is easy to get into
Like taking a hit for the first time
Knowing…
…addiction is real
Knowing…

That you could get use to
The taste

The smell
The longing for it

That thing runs so deep
A recovering addict can’t commune with the saints
Just a sip will have him backsliding

Just the sound of her name
Triggers memories marking the beginning of the obsession
Like sin
It’s still in his heart
I understand why he’s scared
He’s afraid of what he’s worked so hard at getting over

I understand…
…I’m scared too
