A/N: Thank you to everyone who reveiwed, you know who you are! Please check out my other poems and enjoy!


I've got the cigarettes

And you've got the lighter

I want a smoke

But you, you're a fighter


And when you give in

I'll still be strong

Afraid of getting blamed

Afraid of being wrong


Guess we're in a stalemate

Case of catch twenty two

You won't give me the lighter

I won't give cigarettes to you


And there are no more matches

And the only smokes are the ones I own

Maybe we could look somewhere else

But there's no fun in smoking alone


I remember our first time

One cold night behind the school

We breathed in that deadly smoke

And we began this fruitless duel


Because you said never again

And I said that's fine

You kept the lighter

But the cigarettes were mine


No matter how bad we want it

I know we'll never smoke again

We might be willing to kill ourselves

But we couldn't kill a friend
