I'm not what I used to be

I've weakened considerably

I've sat watching pieces of me

Sink into the space between

Losing everything slowly

Shedding personality

Letting it go painfully

Floating up away from me

Like smoke in the breeze

From the cigarette between my teeth

I take each breath grudgingly

Forcing it out of need

This is not who I should be

Tonight's thoughts will remind me

My character is fading

As I become another piece
