I finally understand that you have no intention   you alluded loosely to that fact   you might quit   but not now   

when you are high on street drugs or Suboxone   your voice is   kind   soft   pleasing   

when you run out & start coming down   it’s   hard   sharp   unkind   you say things that hurt    causing you to leave   abruptly 

is that why you can’t go back to the shelter for 90 days?   was it your   edgy   sharp   arrogant   self-righteous tone?   nobody wants to deal with that    

when you call from a rehab & have that sweet tone   the old you returns & I hear hope   but it doesn’t last long   you don’t give it time to work   because   you say   the people around you are not   a fit.
