Love Smoke

Love Smoke

A Poem by Paul Bell


I draw you in
Five rings of smoke appear like magic 
Your face on every one 
Christ how romantic am I
Maybe drink a JD  in your honour
It's amazing how little things bring you to me
The phone comes alive halfway through your honour 
Your soft sexy voice sends a tingle down my spine 
You say it's over 
Well, that was out of the blue 
I draw you in 
The sign on the packet
Smoking can damage your health and eventually kill you 
So profound 
I check the bottle of JD
No warning on that
You disappear into the clouds
Every one a silver lining.

Love can definitely be that 'dreaded two-edged sword. Funny how something so remarkable and pleasurable can bring so much pain too.

Don't you start smoking and drinking now.

Ah..I won't ever do that...
I love the way how your poem draws the attention of the reader into its dark side at the same time causes us to think more effectively.

Romance can be dark I think.

Loved the romance, the dark humour and the casual flow and feel to your words. Made me feel part of your poem and your feelings. Great job.

Thanks Dee. The JD does it.
"It's amazing how little things bring you to me" That line stood out the most for me. Perhaps because I can really relate to that when I'm writing my own poems. Loved reading this piece :)

Thanks, Madeira. One I like myself.
I always like it very very much, enjoy it so very much, and admire it when I read a poem or a style that has a real personal touch, like the one here, it gives the words more sincerity, more faithfulness, real and alive feelings, thank You for sharing it my friend.

My my, you make danger sound so exciting. The stream of conscious narration is done to very good effect in this poem.
