Inhaling Fumes

I can’t stand it

Like toxic fumes

From a running car

Breathing in

Your alcohol heavy breath

Is almost enough to

Get me drunk too

But I won’t drink anymore

A stupid voice inside

Tells me then you

Might stop too

But that was just

Another broken dream

For you never did stop

And those fumes

Were a big part of why

I walked out the door
