this is my first time writing in a long time, so be gentle

sucking in that sweet cancer
gasp for the last drag of sanity
breathing in a divine death
hoping for a semblance of clarity
caught in the wisps of these burning leaves
every ash a loss so dear
a last resort to reclaim
a second of life once serene
mourning the moment when
i grind that precious ember into nothingness
despose of the remains longing
for another filters kiss so sweet
better than any lovers caress
more faithful than a person could be
my one true love

Seems weird. Like one of those adverts that the National Health Service here in the UK make about how to kick the habit, but with more grim, poetic lyrics.

I think I'd change the title to elude to smoking like "My Truest Flame" or "The Ember that Burns for Only Me." I dunno. I'm having a dull writing time right now. But anyways, I'd also take out the word "smoking" all though it. It lets the piece breathe more like a long comfortable drag and relaxing exhale watching the curls or rings drift off into sun's rays pouring through a window and melding before complete disappearance. Maybe pulling a worry or unpleasant thought away. I'm not condoning smoking, but give what you have a little more shot in the arm and I think it'll be more satisfying. It'll read like a Marlboro instead of a Basic. :)

fair enough, you always got good advice mom

This offends me as a smoker and cancer-endorser. But since I can't do anything about it, I'll just develop a sense of humor. haha.

No, in all seriousness, I liked it.

I only smoke during sex.


The Doctor 2008-04-04 09:27

during?! I hope you mean afterwards

Blacklep177 2009-03-04 13:25

lol, i doubt he meansafter, pretty sure he said during, i know someone that is the same way, go for a bit, and then go "smoke break" then back at it again, lol..

I agree with the word smoking being repeated too oft', but in general i like some of the imageries, cus i smoke a lot, and that is exactly why i smoke...

... i honestly have trouble believing that is talking only about cigarettes though... just the imagery in a couple lines screamed "this is no cigarette", lol
but thats prolly cus i smoke a lot of pipe tobacco as well.
