Bad Habits

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

…addiction is real

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
