How alive does your writing make you feel?

One Moment

That first inhale hurts worse than a burn.

Your lungs expand and ache. Your throat burns. Your head feels lighter and your body somehow feels disconnected from your brain.

It sounds awful, but I loved it.

However, it slowly kills me.

It blackens my lungs.

It yellows my teeth.

It creates a cancer in my body and yet somehow I can’t stop.

Maybe it’s because I don’t care if it ruins me as long as I have that one moment.

The moment when things slow down. My body feels lighter, and the air feels cleaner. And for one second I’m okay.

For one second, I feel free.
This is something I wrote for myself and anyone else who has struggled with addiction.
