Failure to Stop

Failure to stop
may not be my biggest fault
but sometimes it seems like it is
control isn't control when you keep doing things that you know are wrong for you
like loving someone who doesn't love you anymore
or lifting yet another glass to your lips
or lighting another cigarette
to stop from being annoyed
not that it works
but you try
failure to take a moment to understand the situation
failure to relax
failure to meditate
failure to stop and think
failure to look before you take that leap
these are my faults
owning them, saying it aloud, they claim is the first step
what is the next step
someone tell me before I stop trying to stop
