A Time To Heal


By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Smoke tingled and,
Danced upon his soul.
A simple act of breathing
Was never so painful
No. he could feel the
Pinprick of the goosebumps
All over. A manic craving
Slowly threatening to take over
Intoxicating his senses
Clinging to the remnants
Of self-control he had
He said “NO.”
He knew that he had
Kicked the cigarette
He was finally free!
It was now
The time to heal.

(dedicated to my father who kicked this habit years ago)
