Detox

Shivering.
I’m doing this
For my family.
I just need some . . .

Sweating.
I’m doing this
For my wife.
I just need some . . .

Aching.
I’m doing this
For my children.
I just need some . . .

Pacing.
I’m doing this
For my health.
I just need some . . .

Waking.
I’m doing this
For my liver;
And my kidneys;
And my heart;
And my brain;
And I just need some . . .

Begging.
Please!
I just need some . . .

Take these.
Not what I need.
I just need some . . .

Moaning.
Listen to me.
I just need some . . .

I . . .
. . . Need . . .
. . . . . . Some . . .

Re . . .

They say
It takes . . .
. . . twenty . . .
. . . . . . eight . . .
. . . . . . . . . days . . .
To detox;
And to break a habit;
And to form new habits.

Take these.
Not what I need.
I just need some . . .

  1. I know that’s how I felt when I quit smoking cigarettes. The body’s desire was different from my heart’s goal. I thank God I’ve never relapsed within these 8 years. The struggle and withdrawal, experienced each day, was too intense and overpowered the thought of going back.
    Powerful write…. especially for those that can relate.
