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.

...can't live with them, or without them!
Excellent imagery and cowboy-Kerouak style. Clean lines, self-deprecating, guarded but revealing emotional depth, "Christ how romantic I am". Love it,but remember- not every dangerous thing sports a warning label...Ha!

Yet you would have thought with health and safety going mad now, it would be.
love should come with a health warning....enjoyed :) x

Yeah i suppose it should.
Five rings of smoke - makes it sound like an Olympic event. So when the flame goes out , there's always the spirit to participate again.

Sure he's doing that as we speak.
Well that's just delicious and yes I agree - easy, too easy in fact to draw one in. Come in to my web darling, I spin it just for you. Oh yes yes ... I see them here, there and everywhere. In the cracks within reality mainly (my reality - not theirs)

This is great. Refreshingly original - nice one Bob ... I mean Paul 😃

Bottle on the way to you.
I love the nonchalant tone you carry here
Its what an artist does
Lives through things
never the other way round

Really cool !!!

Thanks Solosolace, glad you enjoyed it.
Very sadly mellancholic. Like smoking at 4 clock morning. Words create beatiful scene at my head. Beautiful and sad. well done.
