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.

Thanks, one of my favourites.
love your emotion and writing and matter of factness that in reality expresses much more feeling such as '' you say it's over
Well, that was out of the blue""

lol well ok
Sometimes we need a little help from our friends...
My back-burners are full up
with things I wish to kinda forget
but actually, there is no relief
from a broken heart..

Well Done...... understood

Always a silver lining
Sometime JD, our only safe friend.
"I check the bottle of JD
No warning on that
You disappear into the clouds
Every one a silver lining."
I liked the complete poem and I enjoyed the above lines. Realistic place to know. Thank you Paul for sharing the amazing poetry.

JD solves all of lives problems.
Let us be honest. Life, can really suck. Yet, in those moments where life seems utterly pointless. That is where we grow the most. In our heartbreaks we must remain strong. Everything bad has a good. Just gotta look for it. Thank you for the wonderful writing.

Yip, love is around every corner.
Your poem points out that there is a silver lining to every heartbreak. Even with such pain, at least we are alive and able to experience the ups and downs of life.

I like the repeated line "I draw you in" to describe how love can consume us in times of elation and in depression. Like smoking, love can be addictive and even fatal. Best to move on to greener pastures!
