Smoke

Smoke

A Poem by New Theory
"

Made me wonder, the lady. the stairway to heaven

"
Unhinged, unknown to the ones surrounding
She stood strong, fearless with cold steel face.
Puffing smoke, surrounded by a white cloud
Contrasting black sweat shirt a little big for her.
She exuded a strange anger, almost unnerving.
Sipping in faster in large gulps, a glance to the watch.
Hurrying for some unfinished task.
She made me admire and think of her enough
To write a poem for her.
That unknown girl, in her small frame
Her eyes looking to a distance made me wonder
Whether her heart was broken
Was that why she was angry
And maybe I could mend her broken heart.
Or maybe there was nothing there
Maybe she just needed a smoke.
Maybe that's all we need sometimes.
Just a smoke.

It's good of you to consider others like this. Oftentimes I am rushing about so much that people do not want to talk anyway, and I can't extend myself to rejection on an ongoing basis when some have the open card to friendship and others are locked away from it or on freeze at various times. It happens, when we get placed on a time out, totally unrelated to the poem but taking the time to slow down and look at people is something we can do sometimes to good result when we are allowed to consider and look, people need to be thought about and considered carefully, not to "help" in a negative way, but to help people in a way they actually need to be. It's hard to weigh it,

Snippets of life and the imprint of our own "taste"...

I liked the feeling this left inside - as it stands.

Funny how sometimes we see someone and wonder what the story is. Maybe there is none.
