and it's only tuesday

by Lauren Singer

there's still a little
bit of you alive
in my veins
sent creeping back
through blood and skin
when i can't find a reason
to do anything
but smoke cigarettes
in the rain with my head
on my knees
thinking i'd rather be anywhere else
than here wishing i was with you.

What a little gem - short, but ever so to the point. I like the way this reads. Nice one.
